I am not in a position to travel far from Denbighshire. Can you please clarify why all Denbighshire conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all lender panels?
Banks point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.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 lenders removing less reputable firms from their official list of approved conveyancing practitioners .
