I am progressing with the sale of my home in Middlewich and the estate agent has just called to warn that the purchasers are swapping solicitor. I am told that this is due to the fact that the lender will only engage with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a big named mortgage company only work with certain lawyers rather the firm that they want to appoint to handle their conveyancing in Middlewich ?

Banks have always had an approved set of law firms they are willing to work with, but in the past few years big names such as HSBC, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have represented them for over 25 years.

Banks point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the pruning – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms 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 not going to have any impact on this.
