Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Somersham

Is the fact that my solicitor in Somersham is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable 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) 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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Somersham conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
