Your conveyancing options - HSBC Managed Panel

HSBC Online Banking activation

We're currently making improvements to our Online Banking service.

If you registered for Online Banking prior to the 17th December 2014 it's not possible for you to activate your existing Secure Key and you will need to re-start your registration.

If you registered for Online Banking after this date, please log on to Online Banking entering your username, memorable answer and your password, from here you will be prompted to activate your Secure Key.

We apologise for any inconvenience which this delay may cause. Once you are registered, we look forward to introducing you to Online Banking, including the exciting enhancements we're working on now.

Selected solicitor and licensed conveyancer firms that are able to act for both you and HSBC.

These firms all have the same terms:

  • fixed legal fees
  • no legal fee charged if your purchase does not proceed due to the seller withdrawing
  • enable you to track your case on-line.

All English and Welsh solicitor firms on the panel are accredited under the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS)* or awaiting confirmation. All licensed conveyancer's are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.

Countrywide Conveyancing Services manage the panel for HSBC and monitor to check your case is progressing.

If you use one of these panel firms, HSBC will instruct the same firm to represent it. The firms' fixed fee includes the cost of them acting for HSBC and the conventional work carried out on a purchase case. Please ask us for the fixed fee payable for the home you wish to buy.
