I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (seven years old) in Purfleet. Almost all the appartments have already been disposed of. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Purfleet?
If you getting a loan, your bank will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Purfleet conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your lawyer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Purfleet.

I bought my house on 2 September and the transaction details is yet to be registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Purfleet advises it would be formalised in less than a month. Are properties in Purfleet particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Purfleet is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the property thus post completion formalities is not typically top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
Do I need to be suspicious that third parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Purfleet conveyancing practice?
As is the case with many service providers, often suggestions from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may recommend lawyers to instruct. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of mortgage providers have an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.
