My wife and I are acquiring a ground floor flat in Cringleford. When we first instructed lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream bank panels. The mortgage broker emailed just now to advise that they don't appear to be on the Nationwide approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we simply choose a different conveyancer that is on their panel or do we pay for separate representation, with Nationwide selecting their own preferred solicitor.

When buying a property with mortgage finance it is standard for the buyer’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancing practitioner has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. 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 solicitor has to fulfill. Some mortgage companies now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should call Nationwide 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 Nationwide's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Cringleford lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another solicitor into the equation.
