I can't travel far from Linton. I would like to know the reason why all Linton lawyers are not on all bank panels?

A decade ago most banks exhibited an attitude to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancers on your panel. Accordingly, mortgage companies have since soughtmore data from law firms regarding their processes and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Hundreds of law practices have been removed from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to satisfy the minimum volume of transactions the lenders insisted on.
