My husband and I are buying a first floor flat in Freshwater Bay. At the point of instructing our conveyancing practitioner, they said that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. Our financial adviser called just now to advise that they are not on the UBS approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we just choose a new property lawyer that is on their approved list or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with UBS appointing their own preferred conveyancing practitioner.

When acquiring a property with mortgage finance it is conventional for the buyer’s solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancer has to meet. Some building societies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should call UBS to discover 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 don't have to instruct a firm on UBS's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Freshwater Bay lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another conveyancer into the mix.
