Me and my partner are buying a 3 bedroom apartment in Leegomery with a mortgage. We like our Leegomery conveyancer, but the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to select one of the mortgage company panel solicitors or retain our Leegomery lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We feel that this is unjust; are we not able to require that the mortgage company use our Leegomery lawyer ?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer 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 Leegomery conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
