Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Hamworthy. I would like to know the logic why all Hamworthy property lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?
A decade ago most banks displayed an attitude to risk which is different than today. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 instigated a thematic review into fraud which concluded: know the lawyers on your panel. Consequently, mortgage companies have since requiredmore information from law firms concerning their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Hundreds of law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible meet the minimum amount of transactions the lenders required.
Our Hamworthy conveyancer has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he needs to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s approach correct?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
Are the BSA planning on creating a online directory to list law firms on the Loughborough BS conveyancing panel for instance in Hamworthy?
We are not aware of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a register.

The benefit of a high street Hamworthy conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job.
