I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Lloyds. Is it usual for Lloyds to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Westbury Park is approved on their conveyancing panel? Lloyds have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

You would be well advised to take a Home Buyer's Report. As the residence is more than ten years old the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may suffice. The report should highlight any apparent issues and suggest further investigation where relevant. If there are any indications of problems obtain a full structural survey.
