I am soon to exchange buying a house in Weymouth but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller in the sum of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Clydesdale are not allowing this. Why were they involved?
The conveyancer that is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Clydesdale of any variations to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to report the price change to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Weymouth.

We're in Weymouth, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Santander , and our lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Weymouth , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Weymouth conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the registration is concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Weymouth is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any other parties. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the buyer is living at the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am selling a residence in Cardiff but live in Weymouth. My solicitor (approximately 260 miles awayneeds me to sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Weymouth who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?
