My wife and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom flat in Oundle with a mortgage. We have a Oundle conveyancer, but the lender advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or retain our Oundle lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We consider that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’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. A further alternative is for your Oundle conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Oundle. All leases are individual and drafting errors can result in certain provisions are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Insurance obligations

HSBC Bank, Virgin Money, and TSB all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to withdraw.
