Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in New Cross is not on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly 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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the New Cross conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
