I can't travel far from Timperley. Can you please clarify why all Timperley lawyers aren't included on all mortgage company panels?
Mortgage companies highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in lenders pruning less reputable firms from their official list of approved conveyancers .
The deeds to my house can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Timperley 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?

If copies are not available, your lawyer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the property.
