My husband and I are hoping to purchase a 1 bedroom apartment in Kempshott with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Kempshott solicitor, but the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the mortgage company panel firms or continue with our Kempshott lawyer and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We consider that this is unjust; are we not able to require that the bank use our Kempshott solicitor ?
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.

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 Kempshott conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
