Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Allendale is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (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. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Allendale conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
My relative suggested that if I am purchasing in Allendale I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Allendale I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Allendale suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
