We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Turvey for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders Skipton Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?
Before the recession most lenders had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Turvey conveyancing firms would have been on most lender panels. The financial services regulator in 2010 conducted a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders have regularly sought more data from law firms regarding their operations and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of conveyancing. Many Turvey conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Turvey is amongst the hundreds of areas where the solicitors we list are are authorised to act for Skipton Building Society.
I am buying a new build house in Turvey benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the extras as it could put at risk my loan with Chelsea Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the property agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's recommended solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Turvey
We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Turvey conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by head office.
