No, not really. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Lloyds TSB Bank approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies 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.

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays your lawyer must follow the formal requirements contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The CML Handbook sets out minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Barclays where a lease does not meet these requirements.
