Which conveyancers did the most conveyancing in 2010?
According to Land Registry figures, Today’s Conveyancer can reveal that the top ten performers in 2010 don’t really hold any surprises at all.

There were a total of 721,089 applications across 8,795 firms in 2010, giving the top ten a 5.6% share. Surely this is an impressive figure if you take into account the predictions for the latter half of 2010? Where this is likely to rise to in 2011 is subject to speculation.
Of all the keyholder accounts listed over 800 of those in the bottom 1000 are only completing 1 application each, will they still be around next year?
Fridays Property Lawyers (in Administration) were just within the top 20 with 1,614 applications, Although with £89.00 fixed fee conveyancing it may be easy to see why they went into Administration in the first place.
One can only wonder how different the figures will look next year following the doom and gloom predictions for the housing market in 2011. One thing is definite, Today’s Conveyancer will be around to bring you the latest figures.
