As I am unsure how the conveyancing process works what is the most important advice you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Old Ford?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Old Ford and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, selling agent and even potentially the bank. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Old Ford is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.

There is a distinct creep in the "blame" culture- someone has to be blamed for the process taking so long. We recommend that you should always trust your solicitor ahead of all other players in the conveyancing process.

I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a local conveyancing solicitor in Old Ford?

You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors should you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the mortgage company to determine if they offer you a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Old Ford.
