Please help. My Pembroke Dock solicitor is informing me me that she is duty bound toapply for Pembroke Dock conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Pembroke Dock conveyancing searches.

My husband and I decided to purchase a newbuild apartment in Pembroke Dock with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works.We would like to retain our Pembroke Dock conveyancing practitioner but The Mortgage Works advised that his firm is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Mortgage Works panel lawyer or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors must be on the The Mortgage Works approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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 The Mortgage Works
