I am not well enough to travel far from Wembley Park. What is the rationale as to why all Wembley Park conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all lender panels?
As unjust as it may appear for lenders to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s point of view, the the contrary view is that banks are becoming ever more anxious and feel it vital to protect them against mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern banks have reduced their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.
Having sold my house in Wembley Park last July yet the purchaser is Skype messaging daily to say their conveyancer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?
Post completion of your sale your lawyer is duty bound to deliver the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Where appropriate, your lawyer must also evidence that the mortgage has been repaid to the buyers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion steps specific conveyancing in Wembley Park.

When it comes to conveyancing in Wembley Park obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Wembley Park accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Wembley Park. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Wembley Park conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your property lawyer is on the Coventry BS approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with Coventry BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to move forward with the conveyancing in Wembley Park.
Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are the main cause of obstruction in Wembley Park house deals. Is there any truth in this?

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

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Wembley Park. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain sections are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to pull out.
