The FSA in 2010 carried out a thematic review into property fraud which concluded: know the solicitors on your panel. As a result, lenders have subsequently soughtmore data from law firms about their processes and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Thousands of firms have found themselves removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible satisfy the minimum amount of transactions the mortgage companies set.

My Ladywell solicitor has identified a discrepancy between the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property.

Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers.
