We are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Dunstable with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Dunstable conveyancer, however the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little choice but to select one of the bank panel solicitors or continue with our Dunstable property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Dunstable conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Dunstable. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Taking into account that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in Dunstable I would like to talk to a conveyancer regarding thehouse move prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?
Absolutely - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer due to be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Dunstable.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a case reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Dunstable should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
We have been informed by various estate agents to expect up to two months for Dunstable conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The property information was only received from the vendors conveyancer a couple of days ago so now does it countdown?
One should take with a grain of salt any promises as to fast completion times. Rather you should enquire about the average time it takes for them to complete Dunstable conveyancing deals and whether they are willing to aim towards an agreed target date for your home move in Dunstable
