My property lawyer in Carlton is not on the Nationwide Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my prefered solicitor even though they are not on the Nationwide Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Carry on with your preferred Carlton solicitors but Nationwide Building Society will need to use a solicitor on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the overall legal fees as well as cause delays.
- Choose an alternative solicitor to act in the purchase, remembering to check they are on the Nationwide Building Society panel

I moved into my flat on 6 October and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Carlton advises it should be registered in less than a month. Are properties in Carlton uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Carlton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the buyer is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not usually primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
