After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Harold Hill. My financial adviser suggested a property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £150. A few days later, the solicitor contacted me to say that they were not on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the HSBC panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
