My fiance and I are hoping to buy a property in Newbiggin By The Sea and have instructed a Newbiggin By The Sea conveyancing firm. Within the last couple of days our solicitor has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. Barclays have this evening contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Newbiggin By The Sea lawyer is not on their conveyancing panel. What do we do from here?
If you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your bank 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 the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Newbiggin By The Sea solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
