My wife and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Isle Of Anglesey with a mortgage. We have a Isle Of Anglesey conveyancer, but the lender advise she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the lender panel firms or retain our Isle Of Anglesey conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This feels very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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 Isle Of Anglesey conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
