My husband and I are purchasing a 3 bedroom flat in Hackney with a mortgage from Hinckley and Rugby. We have a solicitor but Hinckley and Rugby says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the Hinckley and Rugby panel firms or keep our solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Hinckley and Rugby use our lawyer?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the Hinckley and Rugby conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Hinckley and Rugby
