We are getting the release of further monies on our home loan from Principality as we intend to carry out alterations to our house in Wythall. Are we obliged to appoint a nearby Wythall solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Principality would not normally require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Principality panel.

I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Wythall on 6/11/2018, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent informed us that the owners will only move forward if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Wythall
