Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Streatham is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?
That is most likely a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% 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 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 simply call the Streatham conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Streatham conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel?
Streatham conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Co-operative directly.
We are planning to buy with Melton Mowbray Building Society. We have called around locally but am unable to find a Streatham conveyancing firm on the Melton Mowbray Building Society approved list. Could you assist?

I acquired a flat in Streatham last 31/1/2019 and to date it is still not recorded with the Land Registry. It is part of a development site and my property lawyer told me that it can take 12 months to register. I have contacted HM Land Registry directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Should I be concerned?
It is your conveyancing practitioner that you should turn to here in order to satisfy any issues which have arisen as part of the registration formalities for your Streatham property. Normal Streatham conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the seller's property lawyer that they will assist in resolving any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
