My fiance and I are hoping to buy a newbuild flat in Ferryhill with a residential mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.We would like to retain our Ferryhill conveyancing lawyer but Norwich and Peterborough Building Society says his firm is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors 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. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society
