I can't travel far from Braunstone. I would like to know the reason why all Braunstone conveyancers aren't automatically on all lender panels?
Before the recession most lenders demonstrated an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The financial regulator in 2010 instigated a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the solicitors on your panel. Consequently, lenders have subsequently soughtmore information from law firms concerning their operations and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Many firms have found themselves removed from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy track record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to satisfy the minimum volume of transactions the lenders set.
