Is the fact that my solicitor in Gwersyllt is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent 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 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 Gwersyllt conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
