we are a couple who wish to acquire a 3 bedroom apartment in Robertsbridge with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society.We would like to retain our Robertsbridge conveyancing solicitor but Barnsley Building Society informed us he's not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Barnsley Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Barnsley Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The home loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the Barnsley Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors 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 Barnsley Building Society

I have been looking for Robertsbridge competitive conveyancing fees. Can I be assured that all the Robertsbridge practices that are identified on your site are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices on our directory have assured us via an online form that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Robertsbridge firm being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel is incorrect.
