Me and my partner are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Dawlish with a mortgage. We like our Dawlish lawyer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no option but to select one of the bank panel firms or keep our Dawlish conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you 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 Dawlish conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
