My previous conveyancer has given a fee calculation of £995 for no sale no fee conveyancing in Keswick. I’m looking to sell a purpose built property for £125,000. This seems too much. Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Keswick?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you shop around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £100 plus VAT. That being said, you mightcome to rue choosing an an unknown conveyancer.

It is a dozen years since I acquired my property in Keswick. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to locate the deeds. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a chance that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Keswick relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
Do I need to be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a web based conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Keswick conveyancing firm?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often recommendations from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all put forward lawyers to appoint. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there exists a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are free to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that most banks operate an approved list of solicitors you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
I have recently realised that I have Seventy years remaining on my lease in Keswick. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What should I do?
On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you have done all that could be expected to locate the lessor. On the whole an enquiry agent would be helpful to conduct investigations and prepare a report to be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Keswick.
