My previous solicitor has quoted £1350 for freehold conveyancing in Essington. I am selling a Georgian house for £250,000. Is this too much? Is it in excess of the norm for conveyancing in Essington?
The costs illustration is slightly on the steep side. If you shop around you could reduce the fees marginally by perhaps £100 plus VAT. That being said, you maylive to rue opting for an a cheaper conveyancer. Don't forget to check that the conveyancer can represent your mortgage company.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Principality Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Essington?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. 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 at a cost.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Essington 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, find your property and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.
Given that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Essington I wish to talk to a conveyancer about myhouse move prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
This is something that we encourage - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be conducting your conveyancing in Essington.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Essington should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.
