Feelings on Edge

In his article in The Lawyer on 10 June, John Edge again pulls out of the hat his argument about the Law Society doing something to ensure that mortgage lenders pay for the service they receive from the legal profession. If Edge was a mortgage lender in business for profit, I wonder what his reaction would be if the profession tried to lay down such rules.

I certainly know what I would do – appoint one or two firms because, as a lender, I would know that outsourcing to a limited panel actually works. Those firms would get all my business under a controlled process.
