Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Malden Rushett is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?
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.

If you are concerned you should simply call the Malden Rushett conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

I own a leasehold flat in Malden Rushett. Conveyancing was finalised in five years ago. I have been told that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too short. Why is that a problem?
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. This may sound like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies tend to need leases to have a minimum of 75 years left to be mortgageable. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to seventy five years.

You should note that there are advantages to doing so before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease falls below eighty years the premium to be paid to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
