Is the fact that my conveyancer in Grasmere is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor 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 Grasmere conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home can not be found. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Grasmere 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will know precisely where to find all the suitable paperwork so you can buy or sell your house without any difficulty. Where copies are not available, your lawyer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your property.
My uncle has encouraged me to appoint his conveyancers in Grasmere. Should I use them?

My mum and dad are unable to locate their Grasmere property on the HMLR website. They have a vague memory back in the 60’s when they acquired the property there were complications concerning the post code not being identified on some systems.
The vast majority of premises in Grasmere should appear. Have you tried a search to just the postcode. Usually it should mention all the residences inside that postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The property may still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title documentation which may be with your parent’s bank.
