My friend's brother is a property lawyer. I am hopeful that I'll be able to get mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Holsworthy?

Me and my partner are purchasing a apartment in Holsworthy. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we will need to send funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I currently have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Holsworthy. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform UBS?
Your original mortgage agreement with UBS will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact UBS directly. You need not do this via a UBS conveyancing panel lawyer.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Holsworthy accepted, the owners do however have a dependent purchase. The owners have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Holsworthy. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Holsworthy conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Coventry BS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to press on with searches.
I have recentlybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Holsworthy for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Holsworthy conveyancing specialists.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Holsworthy is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Holsworthy are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Holsworthy you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Holsworthy 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 property.
My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint their recommended conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Holsworthy
It is improbable the sellers are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to use your own,trusted Holsworthy conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn the estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
