Is the fact that my conveyancer in Watford is not listed on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?
That would most likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters 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 solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Watford conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.
We are a couple about to exchange contracts for a ground floor flat in Watford. We encountered a stumbling block. Our mortgage offer with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society expires on 4/4/2019 but the owners are putting forward a completion date of 8/4/2019. Can one extend the loan offer?
The best person to deal with your concern is your lawyer who will hopefully assess whether they should be discussing with the lender, seller’s representatives, selling agents or indeed all three based on what has gone on in your conveyancing as of today.

As is the case with many service providers, often input from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are lots of parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may put forward conveyancers to instruct. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your own conveyancer. Don't forget that the majority of banks have an approved list of solicitors you must use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.
