I am not in a position to travel far from Burnham On Crouch. What is the rationale as to why all Burnham On Crouch conveyancing practitioners are not on all mortgage company panels?

Lenders highlight 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.

It resulted in mortgage companies purging a number of firms off their panel of approved conveyancing practitioners .

What happens if my solicitor is removed from the Santander Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Burnham On Crouch?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

New build sellers have put forward a property lawyer and I've sought an estimate from them. It's almost three hundred pounds cheaper than my own Burnham On Crouch property lawyer. Should I use them?

Builders frequently have panels of lawyers who are quick and who know the seller’s paperwork and lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to choose a preferred solicitor for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer won't suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. A counter-argument for not opting for the suggested property lawyer is that they may be hesitant to fight for your interests for fear of alienating the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should remain with your high street Burnham On Crouch property lawyer.
