Having sold my house in Datchet last September but the buyer keeps Skype messaging every few hours complaining that her solicitor is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?

We are hoping to buy a purpose built flat in Datchet with a mortgage from TSB.We have a Datchet conveyancing practitioner but TSB says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct a TSB panel lawyer or keep our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that TSB use our lawyer?
No, not really. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the TSB approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for TSB
