To complete on our property purchase ASAP, can we guarantee fast conveyancing?
Key to faster conveyancing is to instruct a experienced conveyancing solicitor. There are a number of things you can do to speed up the process. These include:

Purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings will be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
Doing your own conveyancing without instructing a property solicitor in Barmouth appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a flat but would it actually be sensible ?
Technically there is no argument why a buyer shouldn't embark on the greater majority of the conveyancing without assistance. In reality however, a conveyancer takes care of a huge array of skilled tasks such as chasing notices/share certificates or notifying parties of completion which require a qualified professional. However lawyers are obligated to be covered by indemnity cover to shield you in the event of any losses you encounter.
What are searches, and how do they differ from a survey?
Searches are a set of enquiries carried out by your surveyor to various authorities such as the local council, HM Land Registry, etc., and focuses on the impact of the local area on your potential enjoyment of living at the property, while a survey (a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey) is focused on the structural integrity of the home and its permanent outbuildings and constructions.
While each may throw up similar issues (such as missing planning consents or boundary issues), they are very different and achieve very different purposes.
