Me and my partner are about to complete on the purchase of a house in South West London but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but Co-operative are not allowing this. Should they have been notified?

Your conveyancer that is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is required to disclose to Co-operative of any changes to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to disclose the price change to Co-operative then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Co-operative and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in South West London.

Me and my partner are planning to purchase a four bedroom ground floor flatin South West London with a residential mortgage from a lender. We would like to retain our lawyer in South West London but our mortgage company inform us now that he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our bank panel firms or keep our South West London solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in South West London : 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
