The charges are a tad high. Where you are prepared to invest time contrasting fee on a like for like basis you could reduce the fees slightly by as much as £125.

I have a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Crowthorne. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Platform Home Loans Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Crowthorne and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Crowthorne.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Crowthorne
We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Contact the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Crowthorne conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by HQ.
