Solicitors and conveyancers

If you’re a solicitor, please see our dedicated Solicitors page for information.

Who can act for an applicant?

We can only work with solicitors and conveyancers whose firms have two or more partners – unless the firm is on our approved panel.

Our panel of solicitors

You can check Lender Exchange to see if your client’s solicitor is available on our panel.

Separate Legal Representation

Applicants can nominate a conveyancer to act solely on their behalf, but must be aware that we’ll instruct a separate conveyancer to act for us – and that this will be at the applicant's expense. The current fees for this are:

  Cases Fees
England & Wales All Cases £375 + VAT
Scotland Cases up to £500,000 £275 + VAT
Cases £500,001 and over £375 + VAT

Please note: An applicant can’t instruct a separate firm to act on our behalf. We also can't offer separate representation solicitors on Limited Company applications.

If your client still wants to use this process, please call us on 0345 605 40 40.

Change of solicitor

To change solicitors post offer, brokers will need to email the new solicitor’s details to Our processing team will contact the old solicitor to confirm they're no longer acting and a revised mortgage offer will be issued.
