I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to leave my let out apartment in Wadhurst by 3/9/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in three weeks as don't want to have to find short term accommodation?
It is unwise to serve notice on a rental unless your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not previously done so, speak to your conveyancer and ask them to they seek the assistance the other solicitors, try to an agreed time frame that everyone will aim towards
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to have a meeting at the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Wadhurst so that I can attend their offices when needed.
Whereas this was necessary 12 years ago, the vast majority banks no longer oblige their conveyancing panel lawyer to witness the mortgagors signature. It will still be necessary for you to provide ID documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local practitioner, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Wadhurst.
Is it the case that all Wadhurst solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Principality. Wadhurst conveyancing lawyers have been selected. How long does it take for Principality to forward the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Principality completed the survey? Have you informed Principality as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Principality conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
About to purchase apartment in Wadhurst. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Wadhurst lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’.

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is counter productive. Contact the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Wadhurst conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.
