You'll need to appoint a solicitor to handle all the legal aspects of buying your next home (known as conveyancing). Conveyancing services include transferring the title of a property from the seller to the buyer. Your solicitor will also run searches, for example to find if there are any changes or development planned that could affect the property.
You can use the Nationwide conveyancing service, or you can find a solicitor by contacting the Law Society or the Council of Licensed Conveyancers. Remember to get a quote for conveyancing services first.
During your mortgage application, you’ll be asked to either provide your solicitor's details, or to choose Nationwide’s conveyancing service.
