Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Santander Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in North Ferriby?
First, 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.

I happen to be the only recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in North Ferriby. The North Ferriby property was put into my name in February. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in February. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the agent advised that the seller will only issue a contract if we use their preferred conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in North Ferriby
