Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Harrold who conducted the legals 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of similar values with a loan from Bank of Ireland. I am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper internet property lawyer?
The costs illustration is slightly on the steep side. If you are prepared to expend time scrutinising quotes you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £100 plus VAT. That being said, providing that you were content with the legal work the firm gave you maylive to regret opting for an a cheaper lawyer. Don't forget to check that the solicitor can represent Bank of Ireland.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home can not be found. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Harrold 4 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
As long as the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and obtain current copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Harrold I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Harrold suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
