When buying a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is normal for the buyer’s solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancing practitioner has to meet. Some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should call Nationwide and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Nationwide's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Malden Rushett lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another property lawyer into the mix.
