Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harpenden

My partner’s sister is a conveyancer. I anticipate that I'll be able to get mate’s pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what level of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Harpenden?

Do compare pricing. Do use our search tool on this page. You will notice that fees will contrast greatly but the service one can expect differ between law firms as is true with most professions.

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Nationwide Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Harpenden?

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.
