My husband and I are purchasing a first floor flat in Washwood Heath. At the time of instructing our conveyancing practitioner, we were told they were on all major UK lender panels. Our mortgage broker contacted us yesterday to advise that they are not on the Virgin Money approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a different conveyancing practitioner that is on their approved list or should we pay for separate representation, with Virgin Money appointing their own approved solicitor.

If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is normal for the purchaser’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. 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 solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the lawyer has to fulfill. Some mortgage companies now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancer should call Virgin Money to discover 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 Virgin Money's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Washwood Heath lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
