We are about to complete on the purchase of a property in Chertsey but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate reparation from the current proprietors of £2k in the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but Lloyds are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
The conveyancing practitioner being on the Lloyds approved list is duty bound to inform Lloyds of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to notify the price change to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Chertsey.
Me and my partner are buying a property in Chertsey. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we will need to deposit funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

No. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lenders make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Chertsey lawyer on the Yorkshire BS please use our tool.
How can we tell if a Chertsey conveyancing solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Chertsey getting recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a residence in Newport but live in Chertsey. My solicitor (who is 250 miles from mehas requested that I sign a stat dec ahead of the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Chertsey who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?
Technically speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are located in Chertsey
Sixweeks into a sale of a flat in Chertsey. Conveyancing lawyers are doing their job but we are being charged a fortune from the freeholder. So far we have paid £275 for a leasehold management information and then another £200 plus VAT for additional queries raised by the purchaser's solicitor.
Your solicitor will not have any control over the level of the fee for this information but the average fee for the information for Chertsey leasehold property is £395. When it comes to Chertsey conveyancing deals it is customary for the seller to pay for these charges. The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to address these questions although many will agree to do so - albeit often at high prices out of proportion to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires set fees for administrative tasks. There is no set time frame by which they are duty bound to supply the information.
