is it true that all Tufnell Park solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Tufnell Park. I have a mortgage offer with Kent Reliance. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
Various internet forums that I have frequented warn that are the number one cause of hinderance in Tufnell Park conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

Searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Tufnell Park.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Tufnell Park 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, locate your property and secure up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Tufnell Park is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Tufnell Park are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Tufnell Park you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tufnell Park may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we use their chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Tufnell Park
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to use your own,trusted Tufnell Park conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.
