I was recommended to a lawyer who has quoted just over a thousand pound for no sale no fee conveyancing in Dawlish. I’m looking to sell a Georgian detached home for £200,000. Is this over the top? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Dawlish?
The quote is slightly on the steep side. If you are happy to spend time contrasting prices you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say a hundred pounds. On the other hand, you couldcome to rue choosing an an unknown solicitor. If is important to enquire that the firm can act for your mortgage company.

I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Dawlish. I have been living for the previous 15 years in Dawlish. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I know the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then almost all of the Dawlish conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will try and sway you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to consider; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it will be of importance to your future buyer what the searches contain. There are plenty of instances where premises with apparent issues can still throw up adverse search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Dawlish should be able to give you some helpful advice concerning this.
Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Georgian house in Dawlish. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and TSB. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be 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 Dawlish and other locations in 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 purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Dawlish benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
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 straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Dawlish is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Dawlish are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dawlish 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 Dawlish may determine 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.
