I am on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel. Can I get an archived copy of a The Mortgage Works Part 2 from the CML?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders do not retain data sets of P2 conditions pre-December 2010. We would recommend you make a request of The Mortgage Works directly.
Can you give me an example of some of the reports available via COMPLETIONmonitor to support my application to be on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel ?
There are many reports available, five of which are as follows:
  • Evidence of undertaking logs
  • Average time frame to send deeds to the lender (calculated from completion date or title registration)
  • Disclosure/Notification to Lender analysis indicating frequency and nature of disclosures - to include benchmarking analysis against aggregate data
  • Current and historic missed priority dates

If my application is successful will CQS acceptance guarantee my firm’s acceptance on to lenders conveyancing panels?
CQS membership gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a prerequisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors. A number of Lenders now use the scheme as the starting point for Panel membership as is the case with Santander.
My firm is listed on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel and scheduled to complete a remortgage within the next week. My file does not contain a Mortgage Deed for the client to sign. Who do I contact at The Mortgage Works to obtain duplicate documents?
You would be advised to contact The Mortgage Works to obtain standard documents. The The Council of Mortgage Lenders Handbook has an individual question for lenders to reveal who to contact to obtain standard documents. Don’t forget to disclose the firm’s The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel reference.
