I am selling my home in Yardley. Does the conveyancer have to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.

My wife and I are spending time looking at houses in Yardley and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a property lawyer appointed at this point? I will be getting a mortgage with Principality.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Principality, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Principality conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Not long after, the conveyancer called me to say that they were not on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Skipton panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Yardley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Virgin Money 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 Yardley property lawyer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

Myself and my fiance have just had an offer agreed on a flat and had an appointment on Friday with HSBC for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to appointing a conveyancing practitioner that unless they are on their approved list of lawyers then we will be subject to an a further fee of £200. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to select a property lawyer to act for them as well as the one we appoint on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their fees. I have asked HSBC to furnish me with a list so I can request quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?

Ask HSBC what their criteria for panel membership is for a solicitor.Then ask the solicitor of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on mortgages for HSBC in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC. Alternatively please use our search tool and we may be able to identify a conveyancing practitioner in Yardley on the panel for HSBC.
