Is the fact that my solicitor in Hilton is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume 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. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Hilton conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of stalling in Hilton house deals. Is there any truth in this?

How does conveyancing in Hilton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hilton come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Hilton typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hilton or who has acted in the same development.
