Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Murton is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (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. If you are concerned you should simply call the Murton conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Murton. Having lived in Murton for three years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
