Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Whalley is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?
It would be unwise 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 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 contact the Whalley conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

My lawyer in Whalley is not on the Barclays Solicitor Panel. Can I still continue with my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Barclays approved list?
The limited options available to you here include:

- Find an alternative practitioner to act in the conveyancing, remembering to check they are on the Barclays panel
This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Whalley. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Whalley?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
Please help - my lawyer advises that flying freehold insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Whalley conveyancing?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
My fiancee and I are in the process of viewing apartments in Whalley and I am about to put in an offer. Is it best to have my conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Co-operative.
You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent.

How does conveyancing in Whalley differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Whalley come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Whalley tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Whalley or who has acted in the same development.
