My mortgage broker has asked me for my Horley solicitor’s panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have called my local Horley office but they have not got back to me yet.
You are best placed to get this information from your Horley lawyer . Most Horley conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
We're in Horley, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Barclays , and our lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Barclays 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.
It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Horley took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

As co-executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a house in Cardiff but I am based in Horley. My solicitor (who is 200 kilometers from merequires that I execute a statutory declaration ahead of completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Horley to attest and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you should not be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Horley based
