Is the fact that my solicitor in Waddington is not on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s work?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of 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 lawyer 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 Waddington conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
