Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ouston

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Ouston is not on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s 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 most common reasons for removal are: (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.
