Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brecon

I am nearing exchange of contracts for my ground floor flat in Brecon and the EA has just text me to say that the buyers are appointing a new law firm.

Why would a major mortgage company only work with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to appoint to handle their conveyancing in Brecon ?

Mortgage companies have always had panels of law firms that can act for them, but in the past few years big names such as Yorkshire Building Society, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for many years.

Lending institutions point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms 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. The purchasers are unlikely to have any sway in the decision.
