Is the fact that my conveyancer in Royton is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Royton conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
I am under pressure from the seller of a property in Royton to exchange within four weeks. What can be done to speed up the legal process?
First, If you are under time constraints for your conveyancing we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local connections and insight. It is possible that they may have transacted otherproperties in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Royton conveyancing solicitor. In addition, be sure that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Royton conveyancing deals are suspended or jeopardised after discovering a buyer’s solicitor was not on their banks panel. This can often result in the transaction being frustrated by an average of three weeks. It is claimed that this issue impacts approximately one hundred thousand home sales every year. Many Royton conveyancing firms can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Many buyers and sellers in Royton prefer a local conveyancer so that they can pop into the lawyer’s offices just in case they have concerns, and to sign paperwork rather taking the chance of relying on the Royal Mail.
One could suggest that there exists a slight edge when using a property lawyer nearby to a property you are planning to purchase, due to the in-depth knowledge of the locality and possible local concerns - but this is moot. The majority of conveyancers are now via email and could be practically anywhere.
