I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Stratford Upon Avon for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders Virgin Money won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Banks tend to imposes restrictions either the category or the number of conveyancing practices on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that a law practice must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have reduced the amount of firms they allow to represent them. You should note that Virgin Money have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Virgin Money Conveyancer Panel.
