Me and my partner are planning to purchase a 2 bedroom flat in Broughton Astley with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Broughton Astley conveyancer, but the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to select one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or keep our Broughton Astley conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer 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. Another option that might be available is for your Broughton Astley conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as you normally would as all rents and maintenance charges will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
