We are buying a 1 bedroom apartment in Chorleywood and Rickmansworth with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Chorleywood and Rickmansworth conveyancer, but the bank says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel firms or continue with our Chorleywood and Rickmansworth lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

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.

You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice.
