Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale.

You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently currently.

I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Sawston for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
