Our mortgage broker contacted us yesterday to say that they don't appear to be on the HSBC approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do?

When acquiring a property with mortgage finance it is conventional for the purchaser’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancer has to meet. Some building societies now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should call HSBC to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on HSBC's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Kimberley lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
