Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Norwood Green is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his conveyancing?
That is more than likely a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable 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 most common reasons for removal are: (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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Norwood Green conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
