Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to to identify firms on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Hessle?

Is it the case that all Hessle solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the TSB approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My partner and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Aldermore as we intend to conduct improvements to our property in Hessle. Do we need to appoint a nearby Hessle solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Aldermore don't usually instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Hessle. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £150. A few days later, the conveyancing practitioner called me to say that they were not on the Santander conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Santander panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
