My husband and I are purchasing a 1 bedroom flat in Barlborough with a mortgage. We like our Barlborough solicitor, but the lender says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel solicitors or continue with our Barlborough solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. This feels very unfair; can we not demand that the lender use our Barlborough solicitor ?
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 lender’s 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. A further alternative is for your Barlborough conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Barlborough what would it be?
It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Barlborough conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Barlborough. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Barlborough?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Barlborough. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

My husband and I are 17 days into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the estate agent to perform conveyancing in Barlborough. We are not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?
A solicitor would have to be very poor to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage been issued? In the event that it has you will need to inform them of the replacement conveyancer and have the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid escalating expenses and frustration. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.
