JPMorgan Conveyancing Panel : Questions and Answers

I am getting a offer of a mortgage from JPMorgan. my intention is to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer. Does the JPMorgan Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers
JPMorgan’s approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Much to my surprise my conveyancing solicitor is asking me for identification documents asserting that this is part of his legal duty as a solicitor on the JPMorgan Solicitor panel. Am I being spun a yarn?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offense if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage with JPMorgan your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy JPMorgan

The solicitors that just started acting on my house acquisition in Brighton has suddenly shut down. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel and my preferred lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £175 for searches. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help

Do conveyancing solicitors on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel work on a no sale no fee basis?

That third party may impose certain conditions such as non-sale-no fee on the panel firms. If you require this as a condition of your conveyancing then you should check with the conveyancing firm that this is part of their package
