Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ross On Wye

I am six weeks into the sale of my ground floor flat in Ross On Wye and the estate agent has just text me to say that the buyers are appointing a new law firm. I am told that this is due to the fact that the lender will only engage with solicitors on their approved list. Why would a leading lender only engage with specific solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose for their conveyancing in Ross On Wye ?

Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms they are content to work with, but in the last few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have represented them for over 25 years.

Banks point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the pruning – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. No lender will say 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. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any sway in the decision.
