I can't travel far from Barry Island. Please explain the reason why all Barry Island conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all bank panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies pruning a number of firms off their books of approved solicitors .
