We're in New Milton, First timers 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 solicitor 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.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in New Milton 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

If copies are not available, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on the premises.
