Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers must be on the Coventry Building Society approved list. in the past, most lenders 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.

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 Coventry Building Society
