I am purchasing a garden flat in Romford. Can I do my own conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Romford you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender.

I just acquired a flat at auction in Romford. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?
Now that you are legally bound yourself to purchase you must hire the services of a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you are faced with a tight deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. Every auction property should have a bespoke auction set of papers. This should include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold premises the conveyancing papers should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation pertinent to leasehold premises. You must hand this to the solicitor instructed by you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
Is it the case that all Romford solicitor practices on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Yorkshire BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a property in Romford has been accepted, what are the next steps?
Your estate agent will want to be advised as to your lawyer's details (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Yorkshire BS or your financial adviser and finalise any appropriate forms. Yorkshire BS will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to arrange an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Yorkshire BS will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Romford.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Romford and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Romford conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Romford. Having lived in Romford for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Romford
It is unlikely the owners are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Romford conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.
