I am not in a position to travel far from Castle Donington. What is the rationale as to why all Castle Donington solicitors are not on all lender panels?
Before the recession most mortgage companies demonstrated an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancers on your panel. Consequently, lenders have subsequently looked to extract more data from law firms concerning their processes and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Thousands of firms have found themselves removed from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible meet the criteria of amount of transactions the mortgage companies set.
