Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bethnal Green

I am progressing with the sale of my apartment in Bethnal Green and the EA has just telephoned to say that the purchasers are changing their law firm. The excuse is that the bank will only deal with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a leading lender only work with specific law firms rather the firm that they want to select for their conveyancing in Bethnal Green ?

Lenders have always had panels of law firms that can act for them, but in the past few years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for decades.

Banks point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that 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 purchasers are not going to have any sway in the decision.
