It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Bank of Ireland panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and pay for a Bank of Ireland panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Bank of Ireland use our lawyer?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Bank of Ireland approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies 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.
