They have informed us that when it comes to selecting a lawyer that if they are not on their approved panel of property lawyers then we will be subject to an an extra fee of £250+. This is because they would then have to instruct a solicitor to act on their behalf as well as the one we select on our behalf and we are liable for their invoice. I have asked Leeds Building Society to send me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told that I need to check with each individual solicitor to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?

You can enquire of Leeds Building Society what their criteria for joining their panel is for a solicitor.Thereafter ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Leeds Building Society before. Where the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Leeds Building Society.
