I am not in a position to travel far from Barkingside. Please clarify why all Barkingside solicitors are not on all lender panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms off of 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 triggered a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in mortgage companies pruning less reputable firms off their official list of approved conveyancers .
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Barkingside? Is this really warranted?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. If you are unwilling to provide identification documents, your solicitor can not take you on as a client.
Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to list practices on the Melton Mowbray Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Barkingside?

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can one make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Barkingside conveyancing firm to represent me?
if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to assess the sum to be paid.
An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Barkingside property is 104 Coventry Road in July 2014. The Tribunal determined that the lease extension permium should be £22,896.15 This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 60.29 years.
