I am not well enough to travel far from Warfield. Is there a reason why all Warfield solicitors are not on all bank panels?
Mortgage companies point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in mortgage companies purging a number of firms from their panel of approved solicitors .
