I am in a contract race with another prospective purchaser for a property in Hornsey Rise. What can be done to accelerate the conveyancing process?
In a situation where the seller is applying pressure to exchange it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will have local relationships and intelligence. It is possible that they may have transacted otherproperties in the same road. Therefore consider using a Hornsey Rise conveyancing firm. Second, be sure that the conveyancing firm is on the member panel. It is said that nearly one in five of Hornsey Rise conveyancing deals are frustrated or jeopardised after discovering a buyer’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal transfer of property being held up by an average of 21 days. It is believed that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home moves every year. Almost all Hornsey Rise conveyancing practices can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check as early as possible.
What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Hornsey Rise
Two types of professional can carry out conveyancing in Hornsey Rise namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors.

It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Hornsey Rise building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Hornsey Rise conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Provided that the lawyer is on the bank panel, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Hornsey Rise accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Hornsey Rise. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Nottingham?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Hornsey Rise conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your lawyer is on the Nottingham approved list. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers would apply for a home loan with Nottingham and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to move forward with searches.
I require expedited conveyancing in Hornsey Rise as I have a deadline to sign on the dotted line in less than one month. A home loan is not required. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

Taking into account that I am about to part with £400,000 on a property in Hornsey Rise I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thehouse move in advance of giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

My husband and I accepted an offer on a Hornsey Rise flat we inherited six years ago in 2012. I have over a decades worth of conveyancing knowledge and, now retired, see no reason not to undertake my own conveyancing. The purchaser's lawyer has informed me that their building society will not allow you to do your own conveyancing requiring the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.
Lending requirements to property lawyers from all mainstream lenders specify that If the seller is not legally represented the purchaser’s lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be informed so that a decision can be reached if they are prepared to progress.
