That would more than likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (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. Where you are concerned you should contact the Maidenhead conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Maidenhead - A selection of Questions you should ask before buying

    Plenty Maidenhead leasehold apartments will have a service bill for maintenance of the block invoiced by the landlord. Should you acquire the property you will have to pay this liability, usually quarterly during the year. This may differ from a few hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large communal grounds. There will also be a ground rent to be met annual, this is usually not a exorbitant figure, say approximately £50-£100 but you need to enquire it because occasionally it can be surprisingly expensive. It is important to be aware whether window replacement or some other major work is due in the near future to be shared by the leaseholders and will materially impact the level of the maintenance charges or require a one off invoice. Is there a share of the freehold?
