That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible 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.

Malden Rushett residential long term leases are for a fixed term - usually 99 years when they are first granted. However a significant flats in Malden Rushett were built or converted 20 or more years ago and so these leases now have under 80 years remaining.
