Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the TSB conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale.

I acquired my home on 12 August and the transaction details is yet to be registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Harringay said it will be dealt with in less than a month. Are titles in Harringay uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Harringay registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the property thus registration formalities is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I'm buying my first flat in Harringay with a mortgage from Bank of Scotland. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead.

For a start developers usually demand contracts to exchange inside a short timeframe, so there is a a great deal of pressure on your solicitor to ensure all is in order.

Mortgage company requirements are also more detailed. Given the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
