Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Are Coventry BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
