No, not really. The bank home loan issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Whaley Bridge : 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.
