My fiance and I are hoping to buy a newly converted flat in Holsworthy with a residential mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society.We like our Holsworthy conveyancing solicitor but Yorkshire Building Society advised that her practice is not on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Yorkshire Building Society panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Yorkshire Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Yorkshire Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers must be on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society

You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP.

My offer was accepted on a house in Holsworthy on 7/10/2022, valuation was booked 3 days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Kent Reliance and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Are Kent Reliance entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
