Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Cranbrook is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s work?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% 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 contact the Cranbrook conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
