Me and my fiance are buying a 3 bedroom apartment in Golders Green with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Golders Green lawyer, but the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little option but to instruct one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or retain our Golders Green property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We regard this is unjust; can we not insist that the bank use our Golders Green lawyer ?

Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 Golders Green conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything.

Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer such questions the majority will be willing to do so.
