we are a couple who are buying a purpose built flat in Washwood Heath with a loan from Barclays .We would like to retain our Washwood Heath conveyancing lawyer but Barclays advised that he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Barclays panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Barclays panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Barclays use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the Barclays approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: 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 Barclays

    The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
