I can't travel far from Cudham. What is the rationale as to why all Cudham solicitors are not on all bank panels?
Banks point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in lenders purging less reputable firms from their panel of approved property lawyers .

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent advised that the seller will only move forward if we use their chosen solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Cudham

Contact the sellers directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Cudham conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.
