Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Tufnell Park?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Tufnell Park your lawyer will request that you place them with funds to cover the search fees. Normally this is needed to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. If any down payment is as part of the purchase price then this should be required shortly before exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be transferred a few days ahead of the completion date.
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is expelled from the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Tufnell Park?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. 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 at a cost.
My wife and I are purchasing a flat in Tufnell Park. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we have to put funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

I am planning to move home in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Tufnell Park. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this website.
On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from the selling agent however this should only be done once the vendors conveyancers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you can advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Tufnell Park or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Tufnell Park.

I know that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I require chancel insurance when acquiring a property in Tufnell Park? or I am told that there is a law dating back centuries that could mean that house owners living in a parish church boundary will be compelled to contribute towards repairs towards the chancel in proximity to the church.

Unless a prior acquisition of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect conveyancing practitioners delivering conveyancing in Tufnell Park to remain recommending a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
I bought my apartment on 5 July and my personal details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Tufnell Park said it would be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Tufnell Park uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Tufnell Park registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we appoint the agent's preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Tufnell Park
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Tufnell Park conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
