Any savings you would gain would be isolated to the costs for searches.

We are purchasing a newbuild apartment in Raynes Park with a residential mortgage from Santander.We use our Raynes Park conveyancing solicitor but Santander says his firm is not on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Santander panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Santander use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers needs to be on the Santander conveyancing 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. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Santander
