Is the fact that my conveyancer in Dymock is not listed on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?
That would most likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Dymock conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
