Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Saltdean

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Saltdean is not listed on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume 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. If you are concerned you should contact the Saltdean conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Saltdean? Is this really necessary?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business.

I am selling my flat in Saltdean. Does my solicitor have to be required to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

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 panel criteria fairly frequently currently.
