My partner and I are planning to purchase a house in Little Ilford and are in fact using a Little Ilford conveyancing firm. Within the last couple of days our conveyancer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. Barclays Direct have this morning contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Little Ilford conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Is this a problem?

Where you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your bank and see 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 the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Little Ilford lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
