Is the fact that my conveyancer in Killamarsh is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?
That would most likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable 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 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 contact the Killamarsh conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Killamarsh I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Killamarsh in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

My husband and I are purchasing a first floor flat in Killamarsh. When we first instructed conveyancer, they assured us that they were on all mainstream bank panels. Our mortgage broker called just now to say that they are not on the Principality approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Should we simply choose a new lawyer that is on their approved list or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with Principality selecting their own approved conveyancer.
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is conventional for the buyer’s lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the conveyancing practitioner has to meet. Some mortgage companies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your lawyer should call Principality and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Principality's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Killamarsh solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
