Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Longford. Is there a reason why all Longford solicitors aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?
Mortgage companies highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in mortgage companies purging less reputable firms from their panel of approved conveyancing practitioners .
