My wife and I are purchasing a leasehold flat in Ross On Wye. My Conveyancer is not on the bank conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to use my Ross On Wye conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank approved list?

My husband and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Ross On Wye and my parents have sent the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me.
