Me and my fiance are buying a 2 bedroom flat in Penshaw with a mortgage. We like our Penshaw conveyancer, however the bank advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or keep our Penshaw conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This feels very unfair; can we not insist that the lender use our Penshaw property lawyer ?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you 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 Penshaw conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
