I was recommended to a lawyer who has quoted £1350 for fixed fee conveyancing in Bromham. I’m looking to sell a Edwardian property for £175,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it in excess of the norm for conveyancing in Bromham?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you shop around you might reduce the fees slightly by perhaps a hundred pounds. That being said, you maylive to rue opting for an an untested conveyancer.

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are the primary cause of delay in Bromham house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Bromham.
I am buying a new build flat in Bromham. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bromham
Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Bromham is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Bromham are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bromham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bromham may determine 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.
What is the reason for my property lawyer requiring a list of items of ID ahead of starting my conveyancing in Bromham?
Bromham conveyancing practitioners are obliged by the Law Society, Solicitors Regulation Authority, the Land Registry and current AML legislation to record that the have checked the identity of their clients. It will also be a condition of your mortgage offer. In addition they have to complete various forms, particularly those relating to Land Tax and need to have information such as your full names, national insurance number and DOB.
