Examples of recent questions relating to the JPMorgan Solicitor Panel

I would like to know the reason why all UK lawyers are not on the JPMorgan Solicitor panel?
Even though it may seem unfair for JPMorgan to restrict who can act for them from the public’s or solicitor’s point of view, the other side of the coin is that the lenders are becoming ever more anxious and feel the necessary need to protect them from mortgage fraud and other illegal activities. As a result of this concern JPMorgan are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control. The JPMorgan solicitor panel is not the most difficult to join
We are due to exchange on the purchase a house but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have agreed compensation from the seller of £3k approx by way of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but my mortgage company JPMorgan will not agree to this. Why was JPMorgan even consulted?
Your lawyer being on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform JPMorgan of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyers to disclose the reduction to JPMorgan then they would have to discontinue acting for you and JPMorgan.
I note that you have a search directory listing law firms on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I retain them for my own house purchase?

I was due to move into my dream home two days ago. My solicitor is on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel but has changed address 8 weeks ago and had not informed JPMorgan of their new address. JPMorgan has locked down the release of mortgage funds as the information from the solicitors isn't correct.
This is as unusual as it is unlucky. The majority of lender Terms of Conveyancing Panel Appointment specifically oblige the solicitor to inform the lender of an address change. Your solicitor needs to treat this with the utmost urgency. Do speak with or register your concern with the senior partner (assuming he or she is not your direct lawyer). Most lenders would be reasonable in this situation and expedite the resolution of this issue. It may be prudent to enlist the help of your local JPMorgan branch or your mortgage broker to see if they can assist.
Are all Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel?
It is true that some banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
How can we tell if a solicitor on the JPMorgan panel is any good?
seeking recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing
My ex -wife’s name is on the JPMorgan mortgage of my property but not on the land registry. The apartment was transferred to me on our divorce many years ago by way of a sealed court order. Does my ex still have a say on the sale even though the land registry showing the property in my name alone? Will I be required to take her name of the JPMorgan mortgage in order to sell?
In terms of the JPMorgan mortgage, it is unusual that your ex-wife’s name remains on the mortgage but not on the title. It is conceivable that this is an oversight on the part of your conveyancers to ensure that her name was removed or even an administrative error on the part of JPMorgan in failing to update their data. In any event, it should cause difficulty providing her name no longer appears on the Land Registry title and you have a court order ordering that the property is transferred to you.
