We are purchasing a 3 bedroom flat in Hanworth with a mortgage. We have a Hanworth lawyer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no option but to use one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or continue with our Hanworth conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. 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. Another option that might be available is for your Hanworth conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
