I am not well enough to travel far from Seven Sisters. I would like to know the logic why all Seven Sisters conveyancers are not on all bank panels?
Lenders normally restrict either the type or volume of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Typical examples of such criteria being that a organisation is required to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some lenders made a decision to reduce the size of their panel they permit to act for them. You should note that mortgage companies have no liability for the accuracy of service given by any Seven Sisters conveyancer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels in the last decade even though there are contrary views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry indicates that thousands of conveyancing practices only conduct one or two conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel culls question why conveyancing firms should have any entitlement to be listed on a conveyancing panel when it is apparent that property law is not their speciality?
I am buying a house mortgage free in Seven Sisters. I have been residing for the last 15 years in Seven Sisters. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I have knowledge of the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then the vast majority of the Seven Sisters conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to take that path of advice. Do take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house in the future, it could be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches contain. There are plenty of instances where premises with day to day issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Seven Sisters will be able to give you some practical guidance concerning this.

Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Seven Sisters.

The ideal way of choosing a suitable conveyancer is via personal testimonial, so seek the counsel of colleagues and family who have acquired a property in Seven Sisters or a local estate agent or mortgage broker.

Builders have suggested I use a solicitor and I've obtained an estimate from them. They are almost £250 cheaper than my local Seven Sisters lawyer. What's the catch?
Housebuilders often have lists of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the developer’s documentation and conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of developers offer an inducement to choose their approved lawyer for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer won't put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the transaction delayed when they want exchange in 28 days. The argument for not opting for the recommended conveyancing practitioner is that they may be hesitant to 'push' your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the situation you should keep with your high street Seven Sisters lawyer.
