I am in the market for a reasonably priced property lawyer. Do I opt for a web based conveyancer as opposed to a high street Speke conveyancing lawyer?

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Speke. I have a mortgage offer with Aldermore. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Speke agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The sellers have put an offer on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Speke. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Nationwide going?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Speke conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Nationwide approved list. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to proceed with searches.
Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Speke , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my title? My Speke conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my name is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Speke registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. At present roughly 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the property therefore post completion formalities is not typically an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
