My IFA has requested my Belgravia solicitor’s panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have called my local Belgravia branch but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Belgravia conveyancer . Most Belgravia law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.

I completed on my home on 11 September and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Belgravia said it would be registered in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Belgravia particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Belgravia registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore post completion formalities is not typically top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Belgravia is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Belgravia are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Belgravia you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Belgravia may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am selling a residence in Neath but reside in Belgravia. My lawyer (approximately 235 miles awayneeds me to sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Belgravia who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are based in Belgravia
We have AIP from The Mortgage Works who said that they will loan up to £350k. At what point do I need to appoint a practitioner for conveyancing? Belgravia is where we are .
You can appoint a conveyancer now requesting that they create a file on your behalf. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s lawyer to send out the draft agreement. That being said, do not instruct your conveyancing practitioner to order searches until you have your valuation report via The Mortgage Works and you are content to proceed.
