Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Wednesfield and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial process.

For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes a bank. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Wednesfield is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
We are witnessing a distinct ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone has to be blamed for the process being so protracted. You your first instinct should be to trust your solicitor ahead of the other parties when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Wednesfield. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Wednesfield?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Wednesfield. My financial adviser suggested a conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Shortly after, the solicitor contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nationwide panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
