My fiance and I are hoping to purchase a home in Yeading and are in fact using a Yeading conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Clydesdale have this morning contacted us to advise us that there is now an issue as our Yeading lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Please explain?
If you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Yeading lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Yeading. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
