Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from North Walsham. Please spell out why all North Walsham lawyers aren't included on all mortgage company panels?
Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It led to mortgage companies removing less reputable firms off their panel of approved conveyancing practitioners .

Just acquired a detached house in North Walsham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My North Walsham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my ownership is registered.
As far as conveyancing in North Walsham registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any 3rd parties. At present roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not always primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
