Me and my partner are planning to buy a 3 bedroom flat in Sandiacre with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Sandiacre solicitor, but the lender advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel firms or keep our Sandiacre lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We consider that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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. Another option that might be available is for your Sandiacre conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Sandiacre
It is highly unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your own,trusted Sandiacre conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
