Me and my partner are buying a three bedroom maisonettein Park Royal with a home loan from a lender. We have selected a conveyancer in Park Royal however our lender says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our lender panel firms or stay with our Park Royal 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 lender mortgage issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Park Royal : 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
