Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Havering

I am in the process of selling my maisonette in Havering and the estate agent has just text me to advise that the buyers are switching solicitor. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only engage with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. Why would a leading lender only work with certain law firms rather the firm that they want to appoint for their conveyancing in Havering ?

UK lenders have always had panels of law firms they are willing to work with, but in recent years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for decades.

Lending institutions point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. Banks tend not to disclose how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is hearing daily from firms 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. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any impact on this.
