we are a couple who intend to purchase a newly converted flat in Parkwood Springs with a residential mortgage from TSB.We use our Parkwood Springs conveyancing lawyer but TSB says he's not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a TSB panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for a TSB panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the TSB approved list. in the past, 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for TSB

We refuse to give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site.

Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
