Is it correct that all Woodbury CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the TSB conveyancing list of approved firms?
It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their panels.
is it true that all Woodbury solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Woodbury.
