My husband and I are purchasing a purpose built flat in Linslade with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We like our Linslade conveyancing solicitor but The Royal Bank of Scotland informed us her practice is not on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to instruct a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that The Royal Bank of Scotland use our lawyer?
No, not really. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland approved list. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

How does conveyancing in Linslade differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Linslade come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because developers in Linslade typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Linslade or who has acted in the same development.

To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Linslade firm being on the bank conveyancing panel is incorrect.
