We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Rendlesham for our home move. Our financial adviser has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Virgin Money won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Before the recession most lenders had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Rendlesham conveyancing firms would have been on many mortgage company panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies are increasingly seeing more information from law firms concerning their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of transactions. Many Rendlesham conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have Unblemished track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Rendlesham is amongst the numerous locations where the conveyancers showing on our search results are are approved Virgin Money.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Co-operative, do Rendlesham property lawyers have to pay an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
Does a directory service exist listing Nationwide panel solicitors in Rendlesham on the Building Society Association’s Website?
No. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings open the public over the internet. Where you are in need of a Rendlesham conveyancer on the Nationwide please use our tool.
We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from HSBC as we intend to carry out renovations to our house in Rendlesham. Do we need to appoint a high street Rendlesham solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
HSBC do not ordinarily require a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC panel.

I bought a house in Rendlesham last 9/10/2017 and to date it is still not registered with HM Land Registry. It is part of a development site and my property lawyer told me that it may take 12 months to register. I have spoken with HMLR directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Should I be concerned?
