I am not in a position to travel far from Pocklington. Please spell out why all Pocklington lawyers aren't included on all lender panels?
Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies culling less reputable firms off their books of approved property lawyers .

We are selling our house in Pocklington. Will the conveyancer need to be required to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

The solicitors handling our conveyancing in Pocklington has forwarded papers to review that reveal that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Surely all houses in Pocklington are registered?
Almost all property in Pocklington is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Pocklington conveyancing lawyers should be familiar with this type of conveyancing but if any uncertainty exists the conventional recommendation nowadays is for the vendor’s solicitor to undertake the registration formalities first and thereafter sell - this will predictably result in a significant delay.
