I am obtaining a mortgage with Lloyds. I would like to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Gravesend. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, represented by the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Gravesend is more expensive?
The conveyancing costs for a leasehold premises in Gravesend is often more expensive when contrasted to a freehold property. This is because there is an amount of supplemental time required in liaising with the landlord and managing agents to obtain evidence concerning whether the rent and service charges have been cleared and whether there are any significant expenditure in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the block.
I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of hinderance in Gravesend conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Gravesend.

Do I need to have a meeting at the offices of the lender conveyancing panel solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Gravesend so that I can attend their offices when needed.
Whereas this was necessary ten years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Gravesend.
