Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Earlestown is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of 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. Where you are concerned you should contact the Earlestown conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Co-operative?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Earlestown conveyancing search costs, etc).

Back In 2003, I bought a leasehold house in Earlestown. Conveyancing and Leeds Building Society mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing practitioner in Earlestown who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Earlestown conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
