Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is expelled from the Nottingham Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Porthmadog?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only move forward if we use their chosen solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Porthmadog

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Porthmadog conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
