We're in Hedon, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Lloyds , and our solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancing practitioner should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I have recentlydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Hedon for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

How does conveyancing in Hedon differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Hedon approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Hedon tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hedon or who has acted in the same development.
