We are hoping to buy a purpose built apartment in Tyne And Wear with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society.We use our Tyne And Wear conveyancing solicitor but Yorkshire Building Society informed us he's not on their "panel". It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Yorkshire Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Yorkshire Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Yorkshire Building Society use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society
We are selling our property in Tyne And Wear and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Tyne And Wear. We have lived in Tyne And Wear for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

I'm buying a flat in Tyne And Wear. I have found my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't see my lawyer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?
Not every individual in the practice must be listed by the regulator. As long there is someone qualified to 'oversee' the work, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
