Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Killamarsh is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (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 contact the Killamarsh conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
