I am considering applying for a Kent Reliance mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Upton Park with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, but Kent Reliance would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Upton Park

Do not opt for the lowest Upton Park conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.
