we are a couple who are buying a newbuild apartment in Brough with a homeloan from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We would like to retain our Brough conveyancing lawyer but The Royal Bank of Scotland informed us he's not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and pay for a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that The Royal Bank of Scotland use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland
