I was recommended to a lawyer who has given a fee calculation of £1200 for freehold conveyancing in Arley. I am looking to sell a newly refurbished house for £250,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it in excess of the average fee for conveyancing in Arley?

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Arley took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Arley differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Arley approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Arley tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Arley or who has acted in the same development.
As a tenant I am liable for a maintenance fee for my ground floor flat in Arley. Due to redundancy and other issues I slipped into arrears with payments. I negotiated a clearance schedule but there is still about £3000 remaining in arrears.
I want to dispose of the property and I am worried this can jeopardize the sale if I have to pay off the arrears in advance. Do I have to settle before - is this achievable?
It would be wise to speak with the conveyancer undertaking your Arley conveyancing but it might be possible to arrange for the debt to be passed to the buyers. The contractual price they pay would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They could then discharge the arrears once they are the owners.
