Souldappointing a Bucklesham conveyancing solicitor make the ownership transfer smoother?
Existing third party relationships are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing lawyers.

My Bucklesham conveyancer has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is obliged to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance right?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
I am buying my first flat in Bucklesham with a loan from Chelsea Building Society. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my solicitor about the deal as it would impact my loan 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Bucklesham is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Bucklesham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bucklesham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bucklesham 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 premises.
Is there a reason that Bucklesham conveyancing costs differ for leasehold and freehold properties?
