I can't travel far from Heanor. What is the rationale as to why all Heanor lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?
Mortgage Companies ordinarily restrict either the nature or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that the organisation needs to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the structure of firm, some banks for instance HSBC decided to restrict the number of organisations they allow to represent them. You should note that building societies have no responsibility for the quality of service supplied by any Heanor property lawyer on their panel. Increases in mortgage fraud was the primary trigger for the reduction of solicitor panels in the last decade notwithstanding that there are contrary opinions concerning whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Data from HMLR reveal that thousands of conveyancing practices only conduct less than three conveyances annually. Those vindicating conveyancing panel pruning question why conveyancing firms deserve claim to be on a lender panel when clearly conveyancing is not their primary expertise?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in your purchase.

The vast majority of conveyancing in Heanor relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
