Recently contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Caversham who conducted the legals two years ago and wanted a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a loan from Yorkshire Building Society. I am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate fees are a tad high. If you you were to look around you may be able to reduce the fees marginally by as much as £125. That being said, providing that you were happy with the service the firm gave you maycome to rue opting for an an untested lawyer.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Caversham is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Caversham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Caversham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Caversham may ascertain 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 property.
Taking into account that I am about to part with 450k on a garden flat in Caversham I would like to talk to a conveyancer concerning theconveyancing in advance of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?
