I can't travel far from Bourton on the Water. Please explain the reason why all Bourton on the Water conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all lender panels?
Mortgage Companies tend to impose restrictions on either the nature or the number of conveyancing firms on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that the organisation is required to have at least two partners. As well as restricting the nature of firm, some lenders made a decision to reduce the size of their panel they use to act for them. It is worth noting that mortgage companies have no liability for the quality of service supplied by any Bourton on the Water lawyer on their panel. Property fraud was the key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels in the last decade even though there are differing points of view about whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Statistics via HMLR indicates that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances annually. Those supporting conveyancing panel pruning ask why law firms deserve any entitlement to remain on a bank panel when clearly conveyancing is not their primary expertise?
