Pre- 2008 most banks demonstrated an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into property fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancers on your panel. Consequently, banks have since looked to extract more information from law firms regarding their operations and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Thousands of firms have been excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the criteria of volume of transactions the lenders insisted on.
