Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Mickleover is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s work?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 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 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 Mickleover conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

I got the keys to my house on 9 September and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Mickleover expressed confidence that it would be formalised inside ten days. Are transfers in Mickleover particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Mickleover registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. As of today roughly 80% of submission are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
