I can't travel far from Cardiff Bay. What is the rationale as to why all Cardiff Bay conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all bank panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from 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 lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It led to banks and building societies removing a number of firms from their panel of approved property lawyers .
