Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Eastwood who acted for me two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Should I hunt for an alternative conveyancer?

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Eastwood and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A high street Eastwood conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Eastwood. Having lived in Eastwood for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
How does conveyancing in Eastwood differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Eastwood contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Eastwood tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Eastwood or who has acted in the same development.
