I can't travel far from Nantyglo. Is there a reason why all Nantyglo conveyancing practitioners are not on all lender panels?
Lenders normally impose restrictions on either the nature or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Frequent examples of such criteria being that the firm is required to have at least two partners. In addition to restricting the nature of firm, some banks made a decision to restrict the size of their panel they use to act for them. It is worth noting that lenders have no liability for the accuracy of conveyancing given by any Nantyglo solicitor on their panel. Property fraud was the main trigger for the culling of solicitor panels from 2008 even though there are conflicting thoughts concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from HM Land Registry exposes that thousands of conveyancing firms only conduct one or two conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel culls question why conveyancing firms should have any entitlement to be listed on a bank panel when clearly property law is not their speciality?
