My husband and I are buying a 1 bedroom flat in Hampden Pk with a mortgage. We have a Hampden Pk conveyancer, but the bank says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to instruct one of the lender panel firms or retain our Hampden Pk solicitor and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer 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 Hampden Pk conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
