Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goffs Oak

I am in the process of selling my home in Goffs Oak and the estate agent has just telephoned to warn that the purchasers are changing their conveyancer. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only work with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. Why would a major mortgage company only engage with specific solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Goffs Oak ?

Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms they are content to work with, but in the past few years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have represented them for many years.

Lending institutions point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the reduction – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to disclose how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The buyers are not going to have any impact on this.
