This is is due to the fact that they would then have to appoint a property lawyer to act for them as well as the one we choose to act on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have requested Nationwide to provide me with a list so I can obtain quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. What would be the best way of going about this?

You can enquire of Nationwide what their criteria for joining their panel is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for Nationwide historically.
