Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Repton

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Repton is not listed on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?

That would most likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible 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) 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. If you are concerned you should contact the Repton conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Repton. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £200. Shortly after, the solicitor called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the RBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the RBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Repton 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

If copies can’t be located, your lawyer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your premises.
