We are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Beverley with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Beverley lawyer, but the mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or retain our Beverley property lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. This seems very unfair; can we not demand that the bank use our Beverley solicitor ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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 Beverley conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
