My wife and I are acquiring a first floor flat in Biggleswade. At the point of instructing our property lawyer, we were told they were on all mainstream lender panels. Our mortgage broker emailed today to say that they are not on the Principality approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Should we simply pick a new lawyer that is on their approved list or should we pay for separate representation, with Principality appointing their own approved conveyancing practitioner.

When buying a property with mortgage finance it is usual 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 conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the property lawyer has to satisfy. Some banks now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact Principality and see 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 are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Principality's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Biggleswade lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
