Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Battlesbridge. What is the rationale as to why all Battlesbridge property lawyers aren't included on all bank panels?

Banks ordinarily impose restrictions on either the nature or volume of conveyancing firms on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that a firm is required to have at least two partners. As well as restricting the nature of firm, some building societies made a decision to restrict the number of firms they permit to represent them. It is worth noting that mortgage companies have no liability for the standard of advice supplied by any Battlesbridge lawyer on their approved list. Increases in mortgage fraud was the main trigger for the culling of conveyancing panels a few years ago notwithstanding that there are opposing thoughts concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from HM Land Registry reveal that thousands of conveyancing firms only transact one or two conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel cuts ask why conveyancing firms deserve claim to be on a bank panel when clearly property law is not their primary expertise?

Are all Battlesbridge Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel?

Some major lenders now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of firms.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Battlesbridge conveyancing solicitors were appointed. How long does it take for TSB to issue the offer to the property lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have TSB conducted the survey? Have you informed TSB as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the TSB conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

We were going to get a AIP from Nationwide this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nationwide recommend any Battlesbridge solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Battlesbridge solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Battlesbridge

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to instruct your preferred Battlesbridge conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
