Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Grasmere who conducted the legals two years ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from National Westminster Bank. It looks as though am now being charged double. Should I hunt for a cheaper online firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The quote is slightly on the steep side. If you you were to look around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds. That being said, assuming were content with the conveyancing the firm offered you mightcome to regret choosing an an unknown conveyancer.

I am purchasing a property for cash in Grasmere. I have been living for the last 20 years in Grasmere. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I know the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the Grasmere conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to take that path of guidance.

There are plenty of instances where houses with day to day issues can still show up unfavourable search results.

I am planning on selling our house in Grasmere and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Grasmere lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Grasmere. We have lived in Grasmere for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Grasmere is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Grasmere are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Grasmere you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Grasmere may decide 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.
