Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Boreham. What is the rationale as to why all Boreham lawyers aren't included on all bank panels?
Pre- 2008 most lenders exhibited an attitude to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into property fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancing practitioners on your panel. Consequently, lenders have subsequently looked to extract more information from law firms about their operations and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Many law practices have been excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible satisfy the criteria of amount of transactions the mortgage companies set.

Is it correct that all Boreham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the RBS conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
