My wife and I are buying a 2 bedroom apartment in Greenfield with a mortgage. We like our Greenfield lawyer, however the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel firms or keep our Greenfield solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We regard this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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. A further alternative is for your Greenfield conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Any conveyancing practitioner being on a HSBC conveyancing panel is required to disclose to HSBC of any amendments to the purchase price.
