Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a mortgage company your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Penn and Ettingshall conveyancing searches.

My cousin has suggested that I instruct his conveyancers in Penn and Ettingshall. Do I follow his recommendation?
No doubt it’s preferable to select a conveyancing solicitor is to seek feedback from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.
My wife and I are buying a garden flat in Penn and Ettingshall. At the time of instructing our solicitor, we were told they were on all major UK bank panels. Our mortgage broker emailed today to advise that they are not on the Nottingham approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we just find a new lawyer that is on their approved list or do we pay for dual representation, with Nottingham selecting their own preferred solicitor.
If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is standard for the purchaser’s solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the conveyancer has to fulfill. Some banks now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your lawyer should call Nottingham to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Nottingham's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Penn and Ettingshall lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another conveyancing practitioner into the equation.
