I was referred a solicitor who has given a fee calculation of £1150 for no completion no fee conveyancing in Hilton. I am looking to sell a Victorian house for £300,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Hilton?
The charges are a little high. Where you are content to invest time contrasting charges you might decrease the fees marginally by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, you maylive to regret choosing an an unknown lawyer. If is important to be sure the conveyancer can represent your mortgage company.

Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Hilton?
If you are buying a property in Hilton your lawyer will request that you put them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Generally this is requested to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any down payment is as part of the total price then this will be required shortly before contracts are exchanged. The final balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.
we are a couple who are hoping to buy a newly converted apartment in Hilton with a loan from Chelsea Building Society.We like our Hilton conveyancing practitioner but Chelsea Building Society advised that he's not listed on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to instruct a Chelsea Building Society panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Chelsea Building Society approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society
As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a residence in Newport but live in Hilton. My lawyer (who is 250 miles from merequires that I sign a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Hilton to witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Hilton based
I'm remortgaging a house in Hilton. I have found my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't see my conveyancer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?
Not every individual in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. Provided there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the work, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unqualified staff.
