Some major lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their panels.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in West Thurrock is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Nottingham have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a apartment in West Thurrock has been agreed to, now what?

Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancers are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Nottingham or your broker and finalise any relevant forms.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week to get a mortgage offer. Nottingham will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in West Thurrock.

We are selling our house in West Thurrock and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in West Thurrock. Having lived in West Thurrock for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

My 20yr old son is just in the process of moving home, the home loan was agreed last week in principle. When the offer was accepted on house we rang the building society to progress the mortgage application. I was disappointed to hear that mortgage lenders do not accept all solicitor, they must be on their panel, is this right?

Mortgage Companies ordinarily restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that banks have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any West Thurrock conveyancing practitioner on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Probably not.
