Just been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Calverton who acted for me 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from Nottingham Building Society. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Better the devil I know or do I try and find a cheaper online firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate fees seem a bit high. If you are happy to expend time contrasting charges you might trim some of the cost by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, providing that you were happy with the conveyancing the firm offered you couldlive to regret choosing an an unknown lawyer. Remember to enquire that the firm can represent Nottingham Building Society. Do employ our search tool to choose a Calverton conveyancing firm on the Nottingham Building Society approved list of lawyers, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Calverton.
The Calverton conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Calverton have without warning closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the RBS conveyancing panel and my preferred Calverton lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the RBS conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Calverton is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Calverton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Calverton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Calverton 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 residence.
Your search tool is useful but there are many lawyers listed near Calverton being on the lender conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a specific firm on the mortgage company approved panel?
We do not recommend specific Calverton firms as the right Calverton conveyancing firm for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Calverton knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. Before you appoint your lawyer we advise you to speak to two or three of the the firms listed to gain comfort as to which one is right for you..
