We are hoping to purchase a 1 bedroom apartment in Clitheroe with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Clitheroe solicitor, but the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to instruct one of the lender panel solicitors or continue with our Clitheroe conveyancing practitioner and pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We feel that this is unjust; are we not able to insist that the lender use our Clitheroe solicitor ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you 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. A further alternative is for your Clitheroe conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
