Is it the case that all Bubwith solicitor practices on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Bubwith. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Bubwith property lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.
I acquired my flat on 6 August and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Bubwith expressed confidence that it will be dealt with inside ten days. Are properties in Bubwith uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Bubwith registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration occurs once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
My wife and I are purchasing a garden flat in Bubwith. At the time of instructing our property lawyer, they said that they were on all mainstream bank panels. The mortgage broker contacted us today to advise that they are not on the Nationwide approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Do we simply pick a new solicitor that is on their approved list or do we pay for dual representation, with Nationwide selecting their own preferred conveyancer.
If you are acquiring a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the purchaser’s solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancer has to meet. Some building societies now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your lawyer should contact Nationwide and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Nationwide's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Bubwith solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
