I am considering applying for a Leeds Building Society mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Poundbury with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Leeds Building Society will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
We are buying a property in Poundbury. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On completion day we will need to send funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

How can we know in advance if a Poundbury conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Poundbury getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
I have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Poundbury. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Coventry BS?
Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel solicitor.
