we are a couple who are purchasing a newbuild flat in Port Clarence with a homeloan from Aldermore.We would like to retain our Port Clarence conveyancing lawyer but Aldermore advised that she’s not listed on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Aldermore panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and fork out for a Aldermore panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Aldermore use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors needs to be on the Aldermore 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore

I am the single recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Port Clarence. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be affected by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this obligation is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
