Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Louth. I would like to know the logic why all Louth conveyancers aren't included on all lender panels?

Banks point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The elimination of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in banks and building societies culling a number of firms from their official list of approved lawyers .

Some advice if I may. My Louth lawyer is advising me that he has toapply for Louth conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the HSBCconveyancing panel. These Louth searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Louth conveyancing searches.

I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Louth for our home move. Our broker has since notified us that our bank Leeds Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?

Before the recession most mortgage companies had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Louth conveyancing firms would have been on most mortgage company panels. The FSA in 2010 completed a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which concluded: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies are increasingly seeing more data from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum volume of transactions. Many Louth conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Louth is one of the numerous locations where the conveyancers we recommend are are approved Leeds Building Society.

I have todaybeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Louth for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
