FAQs : The Earl Shilton Building Society Conveyancing Panel from members of the public

I am in the process of selling my house and the EA has just e-mailed to say that the purchasers are switching law firm. I am told that this is due to the fact that Earl Shilton Building Society will only engage with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a major mortgage company only engage with specific solicitors?
Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms they are willing to work with, but in the past few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for decades.

Lenders blame a rise in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been tightened and a smaller panel should be easier to keep an eye on. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels, or have other concerns about them. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyer’s case. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any sway in the decision.

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.

My solicitors in Manchester have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with Earl Shilton Building Society.

It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in month 2010 but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Earl Shilton Building Society are being a right pain. The solicitor who is on the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Earl Shilton Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Earl Shilton Building Society have a conveyancing panel of they don’t accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Earl Shilton Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Earl Shilton Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing correctly and safely installed. It merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
