My wife and I are buying a property in Buckfastleigh and Dean. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we have to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

We had selected solicitors locally in Buckfastleigh and Dean on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further fee for handling the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Kent Reliance?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Buckfastleigh and Dean solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Kent Reliance panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
We were going to get a OIP from HSBC this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Buckfastleigh and Dean solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Buckfastleigh and Dean solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Buckfastleigh and Dean I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Buckfastleigh and Dean for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent told us that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Buckfastleigh and Dean
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your preferred Buckfastleigh and Dean conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing targets set by HQ.
