I am not well enough to travel far from Chesham Bois. Is there a reason why all Chesham Bois solicitors are not on all lender 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 mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This led to mortgage companies removing less reputable firms off their official list of approved property lawyers .
