Me and my partner are planning to buy a 1 bedroom flat in Middleton St George with a mortgage. We like our Middleton St George solicitor, but the lender advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or keep our Middleton St George solicitor and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 Middleton St George conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
