Why would my firm consider a Cambridge Building Society handbook compliance audit?

Lexsure frequently talk with Cambridge Building Society conveyancing panel companies who express confidence that they have comprehensive risk protocols. Yet Lexsure sees common breaches of the lender Handbook requirements. In fact, we have yet to complete an audit that didn’t reveal any breaches. An adverse externally-commissioned audit by a lender could result in an insurance claim or removal from a panel. Failure to comply with handbook requirements for Cambridge Building Society or any lender leaves you open to costly and damaging claims if the lender suffers a loss and even regulatory action by the SRA. Lexsure’s lender compliance audits are an efficient way to ensure all is in order.

Is there an option for the audit to cover commercial conveyancing files with lender compliance issues?

No. The lender compliance audit does not extend beyond residential conveyancing.

What happens if or when you uncover breaches? Do you inform Cambridge Building Society or their panel managers?

This is frequently asked. Where a conveyancing file audit is arranged by your firm and Lexsure uncovers problems, they are often easily categorised. We can not undo what has been done but we are able to suggest adjustments to the problematic parts of your risk prevention protocols and checklists. In addition we can advise on tools to help avoid recurrences with the aim of protecting your panel status.

Where commissioned by your firm Lexsure has no duty to report breaches to Cambridge Building Society and we will ensure the results of your audit are completely confidential.
