Choose the lawyer that genuine.

It is is a decade since I bought my property in South Woodford. Conveyancing solicitors have just been instructed on the sale but I can't locate the title documents. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be with your mortgage company or they could be archived with the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in South Woodford relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

What happens if my solicitor is removed from the RBS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in South Woodford?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Do I need to be suspicious that estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a local South Woodford conveyancing practice?

As with many service providers, often referrals from family and friends can be very helpful. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may recommend lawyers to use. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that most lenders operate an approved list of lawyers you must use for the lender aspect of your home move.

My cousin has suggested that I use his conveyancers in South Woodford. Do I follow his recommendation?

There are no two ways about it the ideal way to select a conveyancing solicitor is to have referrals from friends or family who have actually used the firm that you are are thinking of instructing.
