I can't travel far from Ardleigh Green. Is there a reason why all Ardleigh Green lawyers aren't automatically on all lender panels?
Mortgage companies point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in mortgage companies removing less reputable firms from their official list of approved conveyancers .
Our Ardleigh Green lawyer has discovered a difference between the information in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor has advised that he needs to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s course or action legitimate?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

My son is embarking on her first house purchase, he had his mortgage in principle. After the offer was accepted on apartment we rang the mortgage company to go forward with his. We were shocked to discover that banks do not accept all property lawyer, they have to be on a list, is this legal?
Banks tend to imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that banks have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Ardleigh Green property lawyer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Probably not.
