As is the case with many professional services, often input from connections can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may suggest solicitors to appoint.

You have the right to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that most lenders have an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.

My husband and I are planning to purchase a three bedroom first floor flatin Heysham with a loan from a mortgage company. We would like to retain our conveyancer in Heysham but our lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the our bank panel solicitors or stay with our Heysham conveyancer and incur the extra legals for one of their panel ones to represent our lender. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our lender use our Heysham lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage company mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the lender's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Heysham : a mortgagee 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
