My partner and I are purchasing a garden flat in Henbury. When we first instructed solicitor, they assured us that they were on all mainstream lender panels. Our financial adviser called yesterday to advise that they don't seem to be on the Kent Reliance approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a new conveyancing practitioner that is on their panel or do we pay for separate representation, with Kent Reliance selecting their own approved property lawyer.

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the buyer’s solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the lawyer has to fulfill. Some mortgage companies now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your lawyer should call Kent Reliance to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Kent Reliance's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Henbury solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another solicitor into the mix.
