It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel.

In a situation where the seller is applying pressure for your conveyancing it is advisable to make sure that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will benefit local connections and know-how.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Acocks Green before retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you contact us we can investigate further via the relevant bank.

Do I need to be suspicious that third parties that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Acocks Green conveyancing firm?

As is the case with many professional services, often recommendations from relatives can be most helpful. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all put forward lawyers to retain. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of lenders have an approved list of solicitors you must use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
