Is the fact that my conveyancer in Penrith is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed 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 lawyer 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 contact the Penrith conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
