I am progressing with the sale of my maisonette in Morganstown and the EA has just e-mailed to say that the purchasers are swapping law firm. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only engage with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a major lender only work with certain lawyers rather the firm that they want to choose for their conveyancing in Morganstown ?
UK lenders have always had panels of law firms that can represent them, but in the last few years big names such as Santander, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for more than 15 years.
Mortgage companies blame a rise in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms 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.
We are planning to acquire a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Morganstown who is on the Barclays solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Barclays . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Morganstown.
