My husband and I are buying a 1 bedroom apartment in Bulkington with a mortgage. We like our Bulkington lawyer, however the mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little option but to appoint one of the lender panel firms or keep our Bulkington property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms 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 Bulkington conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
