Plenty of Bagshot conveyancing practitioners should be familiar with this type of conveyancing but if any uncertainty prevails the prevailing guidance presently seems to be for the seller’s conveyancer to deal with the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the disposal - this will have a domino effect to result in a protracted transaction.
