My partner and I are purchasing a first floor flat in Townhill. When we first instructed property lawyer, we were told they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. The mortgage broker emailed yesterday to advise that they are not on the Nottingham approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Do we simply choose a different lawyer that is on their approved list or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with Nottingham appointing their own approved solicitor.
When buying a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchaser’s lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the property lawyer has to fulfill. Some banks now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should contact Nottingham to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Nottingham's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Townhill solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another conveyancer into the equation.
