Why would one appoint a Hartford conveyancing solicitors firm given that national conveyancers are more affordable?
By all means make sure that you compare conveyancing costs in Hartford and you should seek a competitive estimate but don’t be focused with hunting for the lowest priced Hartford conveyancer. Identifying the right conveyancer can mark the difference between a smooth and a distressing home move. It is important that you ensure that you have expert advice from an experienced lawyer. Emails can't be as helpful as a telephone discussion and can never replicate a face to face appointment. The firms that we work with will find you a qualified and experienced conveyancing solicitor that will tackle your conveyancing from start to finish, providing a level of continuity that you are unlikely to received from an online conveyancer. He or She will keep you updated on progress making sure that you are regularly updated. Should you need to phone the firm you will know who to ask for and we'll be sure you are kept fully informed.

is it true that all Hartford solicitor firms on the Nationwide conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

We had chosen conveyancers located in Hartford on the Lloyds solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further amount for dealing with the Lloyds mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Lloyds?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Lloyds but by your Hartford conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Lloyds panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Hartford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham 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 Hartford solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Hartford?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Hartford.

Should I go with a Hartford conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can carry out the legal work but her office is 400kilometers away.
The benefit of a local Hartford conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, deliver your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Hartford conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Hartford based.
