I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Leamouth for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our mortgage company Barclays won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Lenders on the whole restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the profile of firm, a few banks have reduced the amount of firms they allow to act for them. Be aware that Barclays have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Barclays Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are differing views concerning the extent of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud.

I have a mortgage with Barclays for my property in Leamouth. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Barclays?
Barclays must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Barclays’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Barclays directly. You need not do this via a Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor.
