I can't travel far from Flackwell Heath. Please explain the reason why all Flackwell Heath lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought 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 FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in lenders pruning less reputable firms from their official list of approved conveyancing practitioners .

3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Flackwell Heath concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
