Me and my husband have just had an offer agreed on a house and had meeting on Wednesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They have informed me that when it comes to selecting a lawyer that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancing practitioners then we will have to pay out an extra charge of £200. This is because they will then have to appoint a conveyancer to act for them as well as the one we select for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their fees. I have asked Leeds Building Society to send me with a list so I can seek quotes only from their approved solicitors but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. What would be the best way of going about this?

You should ask Leeds Building Society what their criteria for joining their panel is for a solicitor.Then ask the solicitor of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for Leeds Building Society in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Leeds Building Society. Alternatively please make use of our search facility and we should be able to locate a property lawyer in Leighton Buzzard on the panel for Leeds Building Society.
