We are buying a newly converted apartment in Morpeth with a mortgage from Birmingham Midshires.We have a Morpeth conveyancing solicitor but Birmingham Midshires informed us she’s not on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Birmingham Midshires panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Birmingham Midshires use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Birmingham Midshires approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Birmingham Midshires
