We wish to acquire a newly converted apartment in Par with a homeloan from Barnsley Building Society.We like our Par conveyancing practitioner but Barnsley Building Society informed us he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Barnsley Building Society panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the Barnsley Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barnsley Building Society

Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared.
