Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Brantham is not identified on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s work?
That is more than likely a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 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 Brantham conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Brantham. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Brantham?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be able to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
Can you point me to a directory of Clydesdale panel solicitors in Brantham on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings visible online. If you are looking for a Brantham lawyer on the Clydesdale please make the most of our tool.
Is it the case that all Brantham solicitor practices on the Principality conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Principality conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Some banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be regulated by the CLC.

I am purchasing my first flat in Brantham with a mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it will affect my mortgage with Platform Home Loans Ltd. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
