we are a couple who wish to acquire a newly converted flat in Snaith with a loan from Aldermore.We have a Snaith conveyancing solicitor but Aldermore informed us he's not on their "panel". It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Aldermore panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Aldermore panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks 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 Aldermore
