Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Redfield is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?
That is more than likely a wrong assumption to make. 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 top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume 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. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Redfield conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Redfield. 95% of the appartments have already been disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Redfield?
If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your lender will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Redfield conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your solicitor, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Redfield.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Redfield conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel?
Redfield conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Leeds Building Society directly.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a residence in Cardiff but I am based in Redfield. My conveyancer (based 250 kilometers awayrequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Redfield who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Redfield based
