We are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Exminster with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Exminster lawyer, but the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have no choice but to appoint one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or retain our Exminster conveyancer and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We feel that this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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. A further alternative is for your Exminster conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Why do Exminster conveyancing costs are more expensive for leasehold and freehold properties?

When purchasing a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
