My husband and I are buying a studio flat in South Woodham Ferrers. At the point of instructing our property lawyer, they assured us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. The financial adviser contacted us just now to say that they don't seem to be on the Principality approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we simply choose a new lawyer that is on their approved list or do we pay for separate representation, with Principality appointing their own preferred conveyancing practitioner.

When acquiring a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is standard for the purchaser’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the conveyancer has to fulfill. Some lenders now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should contact Principality to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Principality's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred South Woodham Ferrers lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
