Is the fact that my conveyancer in Finsbury is not identified on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?

That would most likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor 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 simply call the Finsbury conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

I'm the single recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Finsbury. The Finsbury property was put into my name in October. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is principally there to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

The 1954 Act provides a safeguard to commercial leaseholders, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a new tenancy and continue in occupation when the lease comes to an end.

Me and my partner are planning to purchase a four bedroom apartmentin Finsbury with a mortgage from a lender. We have a lawyer in Finsbury however our lender advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the our lender panel solicitors or stay with our Finsbury solicitor and incur the extra costs for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Finsbury lawyer?

No, not really. The bank home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Finsbury : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
