I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would much rather appoint a Sandbach based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel lawyers where you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the lender to determine if they allow a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Sandbach.

It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure current copies of the property title for a small fee.
