Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Truro is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
That is most likely a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack 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 Truro conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

Various web forums that I have visited warn that are the primary cause of obstruction in Truro house deals. Is there any truth in this?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Truro.
I used Stirling Law several years ago for my conveyancing in Truro. I now require my file but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Truro is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Truro are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Truro you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Truro may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
