My husband and I are hoping to buy a 2 room apartmentin Rush Green with a home loan from a lender. We like our solicitor in Rush Green yet our mortgage company says he's not on their "panel".

We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The lender mortgage issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the lender's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had open panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Rush Green : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel.
