I can't travel far from Worsley. What is the rationale as to why all Worsley lawyers aren't included on all mortgage company panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.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.

This led to mortgage companies removing a number of firms from their books of approved conveyancing practitioners .
