Is the fact that my solicitor in Maryport is not on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?
That would more than likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Maryport conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

My wife and I have a terraced Georgian house in Maryport. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Maryport and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
