Me and my wife are buying an apartment in Sacriston. My property lawyer is not on the lender approved list. Is it possible for me to retain my Sacriston conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?

You will need to instruct a conveyancer to deal with the legal work required when you require a mortgage to buy your property.

However, where the property lawyer selected is not on the bank solicitor panel supplemental fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not in the past applied for membership they should do so.

It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Barclays Direct panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for a Barclays Direct panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Barclays Direct use our lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Barclays Direct conveyancing panel. 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 Barclays Direct

five months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Sacriston completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
