Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Marlborough is not on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of 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 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. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Marlborough conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Marlborough but how do I know who I should use?
We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Marlborough conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Is it the case that all Marlborough CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now make use of the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of firms.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Clydesdale. Marlborough conveyancing lawyers were selected. How long does it take for Clydesdale to forward the offer to the conveyancer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Clydesdale conducted the survey? Have you advised Clydesdale as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
