Me and my partner have recently had an offer agreed on a property and had meeting on Wednesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They have informed me that when it comes to appointing a lawyer that if they are not on their approved list of lawyers then we will have to pay out an extra fee of about two hundred pounds. This is because they would then have to appoint a conveyancer to act for them in addition to the one we select on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have requested Leeds Building Society to furnish me with a list so I can seek quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
