we are a couple who wish to acquire a purpose built flat in Crowborough with a homeloan from Leeds Building Society.We would like to retain our Crowborough conveyancing lawyer but Leeds Building Society says his firm is not listed on their approved list of member firms. It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Leeds Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Leeds Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Leeds Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers must be on the Leeds Building Society approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society

My partner and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Crowborough and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with Nationwide.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Nationwide, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, TSB are being difficult. The Crowborough solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
