Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Ingleby Barwick is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume 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. If you are concerned you should contact the Ingleby Barwick conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

Do I need to be concerned that estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Ingleby Barwick conveyancing practice?
As with many professional services, often recommendations from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may recommend lawyers to use. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.

Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Ingleby Barwick?
Conveyancing - in Ingleby Barwick or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to fix the defects prior to you move in.
