Is the fact that my solicitor in Rutland is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?

That is most likely an incorrect 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.

Should you be concerned you should contact the Rutland conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
