Me and my fiance are buying a 3 bedroom apartment in Kirkby In Furness with a mortgage. We like our Kirkby In Furness solicitor, however the lender says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel firms or continue with our Kirkby In Furness lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them.
