Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Mitcham?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
Will my lawyer be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Mitcham.

However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which can figure out the risks in Mitcham. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the vendor to find out whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages stemming from an inaccurate answer. The purchaser’s solicitors may also commission an enviro report. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.
