As far as conveyancing in Tickton is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not typically primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

As is the case with lots of professional services, often recommendations from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. But there are numerous people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all recommend solicitors to instruct. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of mortgage providers specify a panel list of law firms you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
My work colleague mentioned that before choosing a conveyancing solicitors they need approved by your bank.
