It has come to my attention via my estate agent that my Great Dunmow property lawyer is not on the lender Solicitor panel. How can I check?

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the HSBC Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Great Dunmow?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. 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 for a fee.

We are in the middle of buying a property in Great Dunmow. Conveyancing lawyer has phoned to say the property is "Leasehold". Should this adversely affect our lender’s valuation?

Great Dunmow conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's virtually freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a material impact on the value, and most likely wouldn't be mortgageable. The length of lease and ground rent will be stated in the lease to be supplied to your property lawyer.
