Me and my fiance are purchasing a 3 bedroom apartment in Peak District with a mortgage. We like our Peak District conveyancer, but the bank says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little option but to select one of the mortgage company panel firms or continue with our Peak District solicitor as well as 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. Another option that might be available is for your Peak District conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
