  • 3 Firms that specialise in conveyancing in Charlton regularly deal withlocal issues peculiar to Charlton and therefore you may benefit from better guidance and faster conveyancing.
  • 4 Conveyancer conveyancing lawyers have excellent personal links with Charlton selling agents and work very closely with them and local surveyors so as to ensure transactions proceed expeditiously.
  • 5 The hallmark of our conveyancing solicitors in Charlton is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by national chain estate agents) often falls short of the high standards of professionalism you would hope for.

As far as conveyancing in Charlton registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration takes place after the buyer is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to select your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you have to use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.
