I am not in a position to travel far from Pangbourne. I would like to know the understand why all Pangbourne property lawyers aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?
Before the recession most banks displayed an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic review into fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancers on your panel. As a result, mortgage companies have subsequently requiredmore information from law firms about their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Thousands of law practices have been removed from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible meet the minimum volume of transactions the mortgage companies set.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Pangbourne registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not typically primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
