A common example of such criteria being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, a few lenders have reduced the amount of firms they allow to act for them. You should note that Britannia have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Britannia Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels since 2008 even though there remains differing views concerning the level of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud.
