All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Shenfield. My mortgage broker suggested a conveyancer. I paid an advanced payment of £200. A few days later, the lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
