My previous solicitor has given a fee estimate £1700 for leasehold conveyancing in Cheadle. I’m hoping to downsize from a Victorian detached home for £225,000. Are these estimated fees excessive? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Cheadle?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you are prepared to spend time comparing charges you may be able to reduce the fees slightly by say a hundred pounds. On the other hand, you mightcome to regret opting for an an untested conveyancer. Don't forget to ensure that the conveyancer can also act for your mortgage company.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is removed from the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Cheadle?
The first thing to point out is that, 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 for a fee.
I have todaydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Cheadle for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Cheadle conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Cheadle is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Cheadle are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cheadle you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cheadle 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.
