As someone not used to conveyancing in Goodmayes what is the number one tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Goodmayes
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Goodmayes and elsewhere in Essex is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes the lender. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Goodmayes is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to protect you.
We are witnessing a worrying ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you should always trust your lawyer ahead of all other players in the home moving process.

I completed on my home on 5 July and my personal details is yet to be registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Goodmayes said it would be formalised inside ten days. Are transfers in Goodmayes particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Goodmayes registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. At present approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs once the buyer has moved in to the premises so post completion formalities is not always an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

The primary upside of using a local Goodmayes conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were impressed that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Goodmayes conveyancing lawyer just because they are Goodmayes based.
