I am getting a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. I would like to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Colindale. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is expelled from the Co-operative Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Colindale?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that could affect a commercial estate in Colindale?
Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Colindale will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Colindale.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Colindale it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

These searches are not conducted for residential conveyancing in Colindale.
Given that I am about to spend 450k on a property in Colindale I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer about myhome move before appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
This is something that we recommend - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Colindale.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Colindale should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.
Am I best advised to choose a Colindale conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am buying? We have a good friend who can execute the conveyancing but her office is 400miles drive away.
The primary upside of using a local Colindale conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were happy that must outweigh using an unknown Colindale conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.
