Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the TSB Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Belvedere?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Belvedere 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?
