Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Callington who completed the legal work two years ago asking for a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house move (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of similar values with a loan from Bank of Scotland. I am now being charged twice the amount. Better the devil I know or should I try and find an alternative property lawyer?

I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must leave my let out flat in Callington by 29/8/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in a couple of weeks as don't want to have to find short term accommodation?

Your property lawyer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Callington can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of alterations or require the consent of a 3rd party. Certain works call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, UBS are being problematic. The Callington solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but UBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that UBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why UBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Callington accepted, the owner does however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Callington. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Skipton?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain given your reluctance to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Callington conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your lawyer is on the Skipton approved list. As to the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for a home loan with Skipton and arrange for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Callington.
