My property lawyer in Garston is not listed on the Clydesdale Approved Panel. Can I still retain my family solicitor even though they are excluded from the Clydesdale list of approved lawyers?
Your options are as follows:
- Carry on with your existing Garston lawyers but Clydesdale will need to use a solicitor on their panel. This will result in additional overall legal charges and result in frustration.
- Get a new lawyer to act in the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are Clydesdale approved.
- Persuade your Clydesdale based solicitor to try to join the Clydesdale panel

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Garston is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Garston are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Garston you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Garston 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 premises.

My boyfriend is purchasing a shared ownership flat in Garston. He was given a quote by the solicitor connected to the selling agents and it came to £1275 . It was ten years ago I sold and bought a home and it cost was £just under six hundred pounds. Have charges really gone up that much?
What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for instance Garston searches, land registry fees, etc)
