Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ainsdale

I am progressing with the sale of my apartment in Ainsdale and the estate agent has just called to warn that the purchasers are appointing a new solicitor. The reason given is that the lender will only deal with solicitors on their approved list. Why would a leading lender only deal with certain lawyers rather the firm that they want to select to handle their conveyancing in Ainsdale ?

Banks have always had panels of law firms they are content to work with, but in recent years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for more than 15 years.

Mortgage companies attribute this action to a rise in fraud by way of justification for the reduction – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

Remember if you are supplying your driving licence as proof of identification it needs to be both the paper part as well as the photo card part, one is not acceptable in the absence of the other.

Proof of the origin of funds is mandated under Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor must have this information on file.
