We are hoping to buy a newly converted flat in West Ruislip with a residential mortgage from HSBC Bank.We like our West Ruislip conveyancing solicitor but HSBC Bank says she’s not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a HSBC Bank panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them.

Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the HSBC Bank solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies 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 HSBC Bank
