Accordingly, banks have since looked to extract more data from law firms about their processes and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Thousands of law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing.
