My husband and I are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Caversham Heights with a mortgage. We like our Caversham Heights conveyancer, however the bank says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel firms or continue with our Caversham Heights solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We regard this is unjust; are we not able to insist that the mortgage company use our Caversham Heights conveyancer ?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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 Caversham Heights conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
Please could you vouch for a Accord Mortgages Ltd accepted Caversham Heights conveyancing lawyer that can complete within 10 days? Would it be better to use a high street Caversham Heights practice or an internet comparison site?

Visit a couple of firms and ask to see a conveyancing solicitor for a costs illustration. Discuss your requirements together with the reasons and ask for an assurance on speed.
