Are all North Harrow Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing list of approved practices?
It is true that some banks and building societies now use CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
Is it the case that all North Harrow conveyancing solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the North Harrow conveyancer is on the Principality conveyancing panel.
