My wife and I are purchasing a ground floor flat in Lower Earley. When we first instructed solicitor, they told us that they were on all major UK bank panels. Our mortgage broker called yesterday to advise that they don't seem to be on the Co-operative approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Should we just find a different conveyancer that is on their approved list or do we cover the costs for dual representation, with Co-operative appointing their own preferred lawyer.
When acquiring a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchaser’s lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the property lawyer has to satisfy. Some building societies now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancer should contact Co-operative to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Co-operative's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Lower Earley solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another property lawyer into the equation.
