Banks on the whole restrict either the category or the amount of conveyancing firms on their member panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have reduced the amount of solicitor practices they allow to act for them. Be aware that Nationwide Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Nationwide Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of solicitor panels a few years ago even though there are mixed views regarding the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicate that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Blakeney only execute a couple conveyances a year.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Blakeney?
Conveyancing - in Blakeney or anywhere in England and Wales - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to fix the defects before you complete your move.
