Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Bush Hill Park. What is the rationale as to why all Bush Hill Park conveyancers are not on all lender panels?
Banks normally restrict either the nature or volume of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such criteria being that the practice must have at least two partners. As well as restricting the structure of firm, some banks made a decision to reduce the number of practices they permit to act for them. It is worth noting that building societies have no responsibility for the accuracy of conveyancing provided by any Bush Hill Park conveyancing practitioner on their approved list. Property fraud was the primary trigger for the rationalisation of solicitor panels a few years ago even though there are contrary opinions about whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Data via HMLR reveal that thousands of conveyancing organisations only carry out less than three conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms deserve the right to be listed on a lender panel when clearly property law is not their primary expertise?
It is is a decade since I acquired my home in Bush Hill Park. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your lender or they may be archived with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Bush Hill Park involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
