I am new to the process but I have an offer in principle via Santander and I already have a family conveyancing lawyer in Prestbury in place. Does Halifax need an approved lawyer to be used?

You need to use a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. The first thing to do is ring your preferred Prestbury conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not approved you have numerous options available to you here:
- Proceed with your preferred Prestbury property lawyer but Halifax will no doubt appoint a property lawyer from their approved panel. The net result is additional fees and probable interruption.
- Appoint a fresh conveyancing practitioner to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
- Convince your conveyancing practitioner to do everything within their powers to get accepted on the Halifax panel of solicitors.
