For Cambourne conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.

Developers normally have lists of conveyancing practitioners who expedite matters and who know the developer’s contract and lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to select a preferred solicitor for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer won't put forward a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the transaction delayed when they require an exchange inside a month. The argument for not opting for the recommended conveyancer is that they may be reluctant to 'push' your interests for fear of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the situation you should keep with your high street Cambourne conveyancer.
