Me and my fiance are buying a 3 bedroom apartment in Danescourt with a mortgage. We like our Danescourt conveyancer, however the mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or continue with our Danescourt conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We feel that this is inequitable; 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 Danescourt conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
