Myself and my husband have recently had an offer agreed on a property and had meeting on Wednesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They advised us that when it comes to selecting a conveyancing practitioner that if they are not on their approved panel of conveyancers then we will have to pay out an extra fee of £200. This is because they would then have to instruct a property lawyer to act for them as well as the one we appoint on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their costs. I have asked Leeds Building Society to supply me with a list so I can obtain quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told that I need to check with each individual solicitor to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?

You should ask Leeds Building Society what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Then ask the conveyancing practitioner of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for Leeds Building Society historically. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Leeds Building Society. Alternatively please utilise our search facility and we should be able to locate a conveyancer in Seascale on the approved list for Leeds Building Society.
