In the event thatI were to purchase a freehold homein Carshalton mortgage fee and have no survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Carshalton?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Various online forums that I have visited warn that are the number one reason for obstruction in Carshalton conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Carshalton.

How easy is it to use the search facility to choose a conveyancing lawyer in Carshalton on the panel for my mortgage?

1st pick a bank such as HSBC Bank, Barnsley Building Society or Barclays Direct then type in your location for example Carshalton. Conveyancing firms in Carshalton and beyond will then be identified.

Is it best to use a Carshalton conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can perform the legal work however his firm is located 200kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a high street Carshalton conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, present your ID and pester them where appropriate. Having local Carshalton know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and the majority were impressed that should outweigh using an unknown Carshalton conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

I'm purchasing a property in Carshalton. I have found my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't find my lawyer's name as listed on the regulator's website. Is this a big problem?

Not all staff in the practice must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
