In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the TSB conveyancing panel, but TSB would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

This is because house builders in Caergwrle typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties.

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Caergwrle with the aim of speeding up the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Caergwrle can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ solicitors. If you have had any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are settled prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unsettled. Some Caergwrle leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. Any bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors.

Organising a duplicate share certificate is often a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Caergwrle conveyancing transaction. If a duplicate share certificate is needed, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this sooner rather than later.
