Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Hurstpierpoint. Can you please spell out why all Hurstpierpoint property lawyers are not on all lender panels?

Lenders ordinarily restrict either the nature or volume of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a organisation needs to have at least two partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some banks such as HSBC made a decision to restrict the number of firms they allow to represent them.
