Is the fact that my conveyancer in Hathern is not on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable 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 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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Hathern conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Hathern
Do not opt for the cheapest Hathern conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from TSB as we intend to conduct a loft conversion to our house in Hathern. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Hathern solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Kent Reliance. Is it usual for Kent Reliance to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Hathern is approved on their conveyancing panel? Kent Reliance have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Hathern conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets set by senior management.
