I am considering applying for a Nationwide mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Saxmundham with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel, but Nationwide would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
