My husband and I decided to purchase a purpose built flat in Willenhall with a mortgage from Aldermore.We have a Willenhall conveyancing solicitor but Aldermore informed us his firm is not on their approved list of member firms. It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Aldermore panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for a Aldermore panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors must be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: 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. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore
