My family lawyer has quoted £1400 for no sale no fee conveyancing in Burghfield Common. I’m selling a Georgian house for £175,000. Are the quoted fees excessive? Is it in excess of the norm for conveyancing in Burghfield Common?

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Leeds Building Society Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Burghfield Common?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
