Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Arnside is not listed on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?
That would more than likely be a wrong assumption to make. 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 solicitor 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 Arnside conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

Every so often a potential adversary will try and sway you that you should follow their advice.

You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

How does conveyancing in Arnside differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Arnside approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Arnside usually acquire the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Arnside or who has acted in the same development.
