Our mortgage broker called yesterday to advise that they are not on the Co-operative approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we simply find a new conveyancing practitioner that is on their approved list or do we pay for dual representation, with Co-operative selecting their own preferred conveyancing practitioner.

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is conventional for the buyer’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the conveyancing practitioner to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the conveyancing practitioner has to satisfy. Some lenders now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancer should contact Co-operative to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Co-operative's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Aldridge solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another conveyancing practitioner into the mix.
