My fiance and I intend to purchase a newbuild flat in Sandbach with a homeloan from Bank of Scotland.We like our Sandbach conveyancing lawyer but Bank of Scotland advised that he's not listed on their approved list of member firms. It seems we have no choice but to instruct a Bank of Scotland panel firm or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Bank of Scotland use our lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Bank of Scotland approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Scotland

I'm purchasing a new build house in Sandbach with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with HSBC Bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
