We're in Newbury, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Nottingham , and our lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer 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.
My wife and I are downsizing from our house in Newbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Newbury. We have lived in Newbury for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

My uncle has suggested that I use his lawyers for conveyancing in Newbury. Should I use them?
Much as we are happy to recommend a Newbury conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing practitioner is to get guidance from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the conveyancer you're considering.
