My mortgage broker has asked me for my Whalley law firm’s panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have called my local Whalley office but they have not responded to me.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Whalley conveyancer . Most Whalley conveyancing practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.

I got the keys to my apartment on 10 July and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Whalley advises it should be dealt with inside ten days. Are properties in Whalley particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Whalley is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not usually top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I opted to have a survey done on a property in Whalley prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks will refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold property.
