Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Atherton

I am progressing with the sale of my flat in Atherton and the estate agent has just text me to advise that the purchasers are switching law firm. The excuse is that the bank will only work with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. Why would a big named mortgage company only deal with certain law firms rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Atherton ?

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

Banks attribute this action to a rise in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to oversee. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms 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 buyers are unlikely to have any sway in the decision.
