My offer was accepted on a house in North Kensington on 2/10/2019, valuation was booked 3 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Co-operative and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Are Co-operative entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
