I am considering applying for a Barclays mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Springwell with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Barclays ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel, but Barclays 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 transaction.
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Springwell. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Springwell?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Springwell. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you.
