Is the fact that my conveyancer in Clerkenwell is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 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) lack 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 Clerkenwell conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Clerkenwell. Almost all the flats are already sold. Is it really necessary to order local searches for my conveyancing in Clerkenwell?
You would be opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in refusing to carrying out Clerkenwell conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. If time pressures and price are primary concerns you should discuss with your conveyancer about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you
