As I am unsure how the conveyancing bit works what is the most important number one tip you can give me about purchase conveyancing in Redland?
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Redland or throughout Bristol is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the seller, selling agent and sometimes the lender. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Redland should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.
There is a worrying increase of a "blame" culture- someone has to be blamed for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you must always trust your lawyer above all other players when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
I have justdiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Redland for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

How does conveyancing in Redland differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Redland come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Redland tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Redland or who has acted in the same development.
