Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Barkingside who completed the legal work 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on the same type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. I am now being charged twice the amount. Better the devil I know or do I try and find a cheaper online conveyancer?
The charges are a tad high. If you are prepared to invest time scrutinising costs you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, if you were pleased with the assistance the firm offered you mightlive to regret choosing an an unknown lawyer.

I have recentlybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Barkingside for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Barkingside conveyancing specialists.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Barkingside is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Barkingside are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Barkingside you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Barkingside may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
