we are a couple who are hoping to buy a 3 bedroom flat in Peckham with a residential mortgage from Virgin Money.We use our Peckham conveyancing solicitor but Virgin Money informed us her practice is not listed on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Virgin Money panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Virgin Money use our lawyer?

No, not really. The loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Virgin Money approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Virgin Money
