The scope of Hillingdon conveyancing searches depends entirely on the property, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your knowledge of the locality and risks, your general attitude to risk.

My house in Hillingdon is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will my solicitor need to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.
Just acquired a detached house in Hillingdon , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Hillingdon conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Hillingdon registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. Currently roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the property thus 'speed' is not usually top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
