Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Kentish Town. What is the rationale as to why all Kentish Town conveyancers aren't included on all bank panels?

As inequitable as it may seem for banks to restrict who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s perspective, the other side of the coin is that lenders are increasingly anxious and regard it necessary to protect them from mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern banks have restricted their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a manageable size.

It is a dozen years since I purchased my home in Kentish Town. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Kentish Town relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
