The mortgage offer from NatWest for the remortgage of my single bedroom garden flat is due any day now. Could you suggest a low cost conveyancing lawyer in Kingsbury?
You are on the wrong site if you are seeking the cheapest conveyancing in Kingsbury. We can offer you cost effective conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Do not be seduced by organisations offering ninety nine pound conveyancing in Kingsbury. The optimum outcome, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst it will result in you being stung for extras and still not get the service required.
At what point will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Kingsbury and am I required to be at the solicitors office?
If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Kingsbury you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsbury)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Principality. Is it usual for Principality to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Kingsbury is approved on their conveyancing panel? Principality have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

The benefit of a high street Kingsbury conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Kingsbury conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
