Is the fact that my conveyancer in Parsons Green is not on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?
That is more than likely a wrong assumption to make. 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 most common reasons for removal are: (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 Parsons Green conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
