Is the fact that my solicitor in Kennington is not identified on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations.

The top 5 reasons are as follows: (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. If you are concerned you should contact the Kennington conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

    The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the estate agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their preferred solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Kennington

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Kennington conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets set by senior management.
