I was recommended to a lawyer who has sent a quote for £1200 for leasehold conveyancing in Blackwell. I’m selling a newly refurbished house for £225,000. Is this too much? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Blackwell?
The estimate does seem marginally overpriced. If you shop around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £125. That being said, you maylive to rue opting for an an untested conveyancer. Remember to enquire that the conveyancer can represent your mortgage company.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Blackwell with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
