We have to appoint from the our mortgage company panel solicitors or keep our Heckmondwike conveyancer and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company.

Unfortunately,no.

The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too.

Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
