    Compare Nationwide Mortgage Panel Approved Conveyancing Solicitors

    What is a Nationwide lender conveyancing panel?

    Your mortgage lender (in this case Nationwide) will have an approved list of solicitor firms that they encourage you to use for your conveyancing. This is because those solicitors fit the criteria that Nationwide sets, and they are all firms they trust. This is to try and reduce the chance of any complications with your purchase or remortgage. 

    What happens if I don’t choose a conveyancing solicitor who is on a managed panel?    

    If you decide to use a conveyancing solicitor that isn’t on the Nationwide conveyancing panel then you may need to pay for their legal representation as well which would result in spending hundreds of pounds more than you budgeted for. 

    By using a solicitor that is on their panel, you won’t need to pay for separate legal representation for both yourself and your mortgage lender. 

    How do I know if my solicitor is on the panel?  

    The easiest way to check whether your chosen solicitor is on the Nationwide approved conveyancing panel is to submit the solicitor to the bank or ask your mortgage advisor. You can also check the Nationwide website to see if they have an updated list of their approved panel. 

    How do I find a solicitor on the Nationwide lender conveyancing panel?  

    The easiest way to find a trusted, experienced conveyancing solicitor or licensed conveyancer is to get a quote using reallymoving’s quick quote form. You’ll be sent quotes from up to 4 conveyancing firms in your area. Of these, you can check directly who is registered with the Nationwide lending panel, or ask your mortgage provider.

    Frequently Asked Conveyancing Questions

    What is the average cost of a solicitor when buying a house in the UK? 

    According to reallymoving data, the average cost of conveyancing services is around £2,038 including fees and disbursements.

    How do I know which solicitor to use? 

    When comparing solicitors or conveyancers to choose the one that’s right for you, consider factors such as their legal accreditations, client reviews, and experience within your local property market, as well as their fees. 

    Can you negotiate solicitors fees? 

    It is possible to negotiate on conveyancing fees, if you have a sound understanding of your case and of property law. However the best way to secure a good deal on fees is so compare prices when initially seeking a solicitor.

    How much is a mortgage on a £400k house? 

    The cost of your mortgage will depend on what you’re offered. The initial deposit will usually be between 5-20% of the house price. So a deposit on a £400K house will be £20,000-80,000.

    Do all solicitors charge the same? 

    No, not all solicitors will charge the same so it’s important to compare firm’s fees. Remember, you can choose a conveyancing solicitor from anywhere, they don't have to be local.

    How can I reduce my solicitors fees? 

    It’s difficult to lower your fees once you have already chosen a solicitor, so to reduce what you pay, compare conveyancing firms to find the best price. Remember to also ask about referral fees.
