I am selling my home in Pantymwyn and the estate agent has just e-mailed to say that the buyers are swapping conveyancer. I am told that this is due to the fact that the mortgage company will only deal with solicitors on their approved list. Why would a big named lender only deal with specific solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Pantymwyn ?
Mortgage companies have always had an approved set of law firms that can represent them, but in the past few years big names such as Yorkshire Building Society, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for decades.
Mortgage companies point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. No lender will say 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. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The purchasers are unlikely to have any impact on this.

You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
