Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Adamsdown. What is the rationale as to why all Adamsdown conveyancing practitioners are not on all mortgage company panels?
Mortgage Companies normally restrict either the type or volume of conveyancing practices on their panel. Typical examples of such criteria being that a practice needs to have at least two partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have made a decision to limit the size of their panel they use to act for them. You should note that building societies have no liability for the quality of service provided by any Adamsdown solicitor on their approved list. Mortgage fraud was the primary trigger for the reduction of solicitor panels a few years ago notwithstanding that there are differing thoughts about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicates that thousands of conveyancing organisations only conduct a couple of conveyances annually. Those vindicating conveyancing panel culls ask why conveyancing firms should have the right to remain on a conveyancing panel when it is apparent that conveyancing is not their speciality?
We note that you have a search directory identifying solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I retain them for our conveyancing in Adamsdown?

There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Adamsdown but how do I know who's good?
It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Adamsdown 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. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I am planning to move home in November. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Adamsdown. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from the selling agent but this can only take place once the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Adamsdown or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Adamsdown.

I am purchasing a house and the lawyer has raised the issue of Chancel Repair to which the house could be liable as it falls into the area of such a church. She has suggested insurance. Is this really appropriate for conveyancing in Adamsdown

I have justbecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Adamsdown for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Adamsdown conveyancing specialists.
