Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ferryhill

I am not in a position to travel far from Ferryhill. Can you please spell out why all Ferryhill solicitors are not on all bank panels?

Mortgage Companies normally impose restrictions on either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that the organisation needs to have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the nature of firm, some banks for example HSBC made a decision to limit the size of their panel they permit to represent them. It is worth noting that building societies have no accountability for the standard of advice supplied by any Ferryhill conveyancing practitioner on their approved list. Property fraud was the main trigger for the reduction of solicitor panels from 2008 even though there are opposing assessments about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data published by the Land Registry reveal that thousands of conveyancing practices only carry out less than three conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel consolidation question why law firms deserve any entitlement to be listed on a conveyancing panel when clearly conveyancing is not their primary expertise?
