Me and my fiance are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Badminton with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Badminton conveyancer, however the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel firms or retain our Badminton solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Badminton conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Just acquired a semi-detached house in Badminton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Badminton conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the land registry aspects are dealt with.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Badminton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups.

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Badminton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
