Me and my partner are hoping to purchase a 3 bedroom flat in Malden Rushett with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Malden Rushett conveyancer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel solicitors or continue with our Malden Rushett lawyer and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 Malden Rushett conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Me and my partner are soon to exchange buying a house in Malden Rushett but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the owner in the sum of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Barclays are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

Any property lawyer that is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is required to advise Barclays of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Barclays then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Barclays and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Malden Rushett.
