Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Malden Rushett is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s work?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% 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 lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should simply call the Malden Rushett conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Malden Rushett? Is this really necessary?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Terms of Engagement that you are required to sign should confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Where you are unwilling to provide identification documents, your conveyancer can not take you on as a client.

My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Malden Rushett. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?
