Opinion of Compliance - Planning Permission - Solicitors involvement

    A brief outline of the scenario - sale of second hand property, an engineer has verbally confirmed the property is not in compliance. Both the vendors and buyers solicitor know one another and have proven to be untrustworthy in the past both independently and between one another - it is a mortgage buyer (who also has had questionable dealings with said buyer solicitor in the past) - knowing this and having reviewed the number of struck off solicitors on the law society website (with client accounts moneys and mortgages being a very frequent reason for being prosecuted) along with the majority of complaints pertain to conveyancing ...

    Is it possible for them to conspire / get around the compliance to get the mortgage sale to go through?

    The vendors solicitor is a very underhanded individual and has the reputation of being a money grabber.
