I am buying property in Amble. My lawyer is not listed on the bank solicitor panel. Is it possible for me to retain my Amble conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender list of approved lawyers?
One will need to have a solicitor to deal with the formalities when you take out a mortgage to buy your home. They will conduct all the relevant legal checks on the property, make sure that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. You could instruct a Amble solicitor of your choice. However, where the property lawyer appointed is not on the bank conveyancing panel additional costs will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so where your conveyancer has not historically sought membership they should do so.

Are Amble conveyancing solicitors under an obligation to the Law Society to issue transparent conveyancing costs?
Inbuilt into the Solicitors Code of Conduct are set rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their fees to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not intended as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, however, represent the Law Society’s perspective of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Amble or further afield.
