I am not well enough to travel far from Rayners Lane. Please explain the reason why all Rayners Lane property lawyers aren't included on all lender panels?

Before the recession most lenders exhibited an approach to risk which is different than today. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic review into property fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the solicitors on your panel. As a result, banks have since soughtmore information from law firms about their operations and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Thousands of firms have been removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms were never going to satisfy the criteria of amount of transactions the mortgage companies required.

Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend.

Where a Rayners Lane property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors passes away, the name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds.
