Home buyers in the UK may have read the recent media storm that has erupted from the recent HSBC Bank’s decision to axe thousands of Solicitors’ practices from its Conveyancing Panel.
With every other lender in the UK, the home buyer’s chosen conveyancing solicitor will complete the legal work for both the home buyer and the mortgage lender.
However, this decision will now require HSBC borrowers to use the HSBC Conveyancing Panel (managed by Countrywide) for the mortgage lender’s legal work.
As a result, many home buyers are worried that this could restrict their choice of Solicitor to conduct their own legal work.
