Our family lawyer has given a fee estimate £1700 for freehold conveyancing in Ashton. I am looking to sell a purpose built detached home for £225,000. Is this over the top? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Ashton?

I am planning to move property in July. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Ashton. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your selling agent but this can only be done when the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Ashton or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Ashton.
My wife and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Clydesdale as we intend to conduct alterations to our property in Ashton. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Ashton solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Clydesdale don't usually instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale panel.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by TSB. Is it usual for TSB to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Ashton is approved on their conveyancing panel? TSB have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for TSB to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the TSB conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Ashton?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Ashton.

I am buying my first flat in Ashton with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
