My partner and I are looking to purchase a property in Edenbridge and have instructed a Edenbridge conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our solicitor has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. Leeds Building Society have this evening contacted us to advise us that there is now an issue as our Edenbridge conveyancer is not on their conveyancing panel. What do we do from here?
Where you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Edenbridge lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
