We wanted to use a property lawyer in Gloucester for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our bank Chelsea Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

Banks on the whole restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, a few banks have decided to limit the number of firms they allow to act for them. You should note that Chelsea Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Chelsea Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there remains mixed opinions regarding the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry reveal that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Gloucester only conduct one or two conveyances a year.

My wife and I have had DIP from Britannia who have advised we could borrow up to £300k. At what point do I need to appoint a practitioner for conveyancing? Gloucester is where we plan to move to.

It would be wise to instruct a solicitor now requesting that they open a file on your behalf. This will facilitate: 1) the selling agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s conveyancer to submit the draft contract. That being said, do not ask your property lawyer to order searches until you have your valuation report from Britannia and you are happy to proceed.
