My husband and I decided to purchase a newbuild flat in Charmouth with a loan from Barnsley Building Society.We would like to retain our Charmouth conveyancing lawyer but Barnsley Building Society says her practice is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Barnsley Building Society panel firm or keep our local solicitor and pay for a Barnsley Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that solicitors will be on the Barnsley Building Society approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barnsley Building Society
