Is the fact that my solicitor in Burnt Oak is not listed on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?
That would more than likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable 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 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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Burnt Oak conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
