We are planning to purchase a four room housein Stoke Park with a mortgage from a mortgage company. We would like to retain our solicitor in Stoke Park however our bank says he's not on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose from the our mortgage company panel firms or keep our Stoke Park conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our bank. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Stoke Park lawyer?

No, not really. The lender home loan issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank's conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Stoke Park : 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
