My partner and I are acquiring a first floor flat in Louth. At the time of instructing our property lawyer, we were told they were on all major UK lender panels. The mortgage broker emailed yesterday to say that they don't appear to be on the Nationwide approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Do we simply choose a different conveyancing practitioner that is on their panel or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with Nationwide appointing their own approved conveyancer.
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is normal for the buyer’s solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the conveyancing practitioner to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the property lawyer has to meet. Some banks now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancer should contact Nationwide to find out 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 Nationwide's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Louth solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the equation.
