My husband and I are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Hull with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Hull conveyancer, but the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little option but to instruct one of the bank panel solicitors or retain our Hull lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. 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 Hull conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
