I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Mayfield. My financial adviser suggested a property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £225. A few days later, the conveyancer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
