No, not really. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers must be on the Skipton Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, 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.
