Some mortgage companies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should call Lloyds to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them.
