Membership achievement establishes a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon: * the integrity of the senior responsible officer and other key conveyancing staff * the firm's adherence to good practice management standards * adherence to prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures via the scheme protocol the standard includes many partnerships who carry out conveyancing in Buckinghamshire.

I purchased my flat on 9 September and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Buckinghamshire said it should be registered inside ten days. Are titles in Buckinghamshire particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Buckinghamshire is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the premises thus registration formalities is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

If so you must make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-sent. The conveyancer should be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental costs and delays.

I am in the process of purchasing my first house in Buckinghamshire. Conveyancing solicitor has been appointed. The mortgage adviser advised that a survey is not appropriate as the house is just 17 years old.
At the very least you should have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property is more than 10 years old the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be sufficient. They will highlight any obvious issues and recommend further investigation where appropriate. If there are any indications of material issues seek a full structural survey.
