I am not in a position to travel far from Rustington. Can you please spell out why all Rustington solicitors aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?
Before the recession most mortgage companies demonstrated an approach to risk which is different from today. The FSA in 2010 carried out a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancing practitioners on your panel. Accordingly, mortgage companies have since looked to extract more information from law firms regarding their processes and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Thousands of law practices have been excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to satisfy the criteria of volume of transactions the mortgage companies required.
