My husband and I wish to acquire a 2 bedroom flat in Ampthill with a homeloan from Clydesdale.We like our Ampthill conveyancing solicitor but Clydesdale informed us her practice is not listed on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Clydesdale panel lawyer or keep our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers must be on the Clydesdale approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Clydesdale

We had chosen conveyancing lawyers located in Ampthill on the Principality solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further sum for dealing with the Principality mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Principality?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Principality but by your Ampthill lawyer. Some firms on the Principality panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

We were going to get a DIP from Barclays this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any Ampthill solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Ampthill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.
