Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Primrose Hill

I am one month into the sale of my ground floor flat in Primrose Hill and the EA has just telephoned to warn that the buyers are appointing a new conveyancer. The excuse is that the bank will only work with solicitors on their approved list. Why would a major lender only deal with specific law firms rather the firm that they want to appoint to handle their conveyancing in Primrose Hill ?

UK lenders have always had panels of law firms that can represent them, but in the last few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for decades.

Banks point to the increase 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 disclose 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. The buyers are not going to have any impact on this.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Virgin Money. Is it usual for Virgin Money to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Primrose Hill is approved on their conveyancing panel? Virgin Money have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
