We are hoping to buy a 3 bedroom apartment in Amersham with a loan from Skipton Building Society.We have a Amersham conveyancing lawyer but Skipton Building Society informed us he's not on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Skipton Building Society panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Skipton Building Society use our lawyer?

No, not really. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the Skipton Building Society conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society

It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Amersham bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Amersham conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Your property lawyer must follow the CML Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
