My fiance and I are buying a purpose built apartment in Lymm with a residential mortgage from Barclays .We have a Lymm conveyancing solicitor but Barclays says he's not on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Barclays panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers needs to be on the Barclays solicitor panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barclays
