The conveyancer who helped my previous purchase has given a fee calculation of £1350 for no sale no fee conveyancing in Brentwood. I’m looking to sell a modern house for £200,000. This appears expensive. Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Brentwood?
The estimate does seem a tad overpriced. If you shop around you might decrease the fees marginally by perhaps £125. That being said, you maycome to rue choosing an an unknown solicitor. Don't forget to check the solicitor can also act for your mortgage company.

We are a couple about to exchange contracts for a semi detached house in Brentwood. We have hit a snag. The mortgage offer with Barnsley Building Society expires on 24/1/2023 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 26/1/2023. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage expiry date?
The best person to address this issue is your conveyancer who should calculate whether they should be discussing with the mortgage broker, vendor’s conveyancers, property agents or indeed all parties taking into account the circumstances your house move as of today.
It is a dozen years since I purchased my property in Brentwood. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may be archived with the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Brentwood relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
My wife and I are selling our home in Brentwood and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Brentwood lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Brentwood. Having lived in Brentwood for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
Me and my husband are disposing of a Brentwood ground floor flat left to us ten years ago in 2009. I have over ten years conveyancing experience and, now retired, wish to do my own conveyancing. The buyer's conveyancer has informed me that their mortgage company will not allow us to do our own conveyancing as they require the funds to be transferred to a solicitor's bank account.
Mortgage instructions to conveyancers from all mainstream lenders specify that If the vendor is not legally represented the purchaser’s lawyers should check whether the bank needs to be notified so that a decision can be reached as to whether they are prepared to proceed.
