The fact that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

Do not opt for the cheapest Norbury conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

Is it the case that all Norbury solicitor firms on the HSBC conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Norbury. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Norbury conveyancing practitioner is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

As far as conveyancing in Norbury is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales.

Registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not typically an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
