My husband and I decided to purchase a purpose built flat in Northfield with a loan from Bank of Ireland.We use our Northfield conveyancing practitioner but Bank of Ireland informed us his firm is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Bank of Ireland panel lawyer or keep our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Bank of Ireland use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. in the past, 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland
