It has come to my attention via my mortgage broker that my Tring lawyer is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain if this is indeed the case?
You need to call your Tring lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Tring conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.

Tring conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Kent Reliance directly.
