Recently contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Lake who acted for me 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . It looks as though am now being charged double. Should I hunt for a cheaper internet property lawyer?
The estimate does seem a tad on the high side. Where you are content to expend time contrasting charges you could trim some of the expense by say a hundred pounds.

Do I choose a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Lake?
There are two types of lawyers who can execute conveyancing in Lake namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors. Both professionals handle conveyancing services that required to complete the sale or purchase of property. Both are duty bound to perform Lake conveyancing to the same quality and guidelines so you can be sure that your conveyancing will be professionally carried out and that all necessary steps should be suitably adhered to.
I'm the single recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Lake. The Lake property was put into my name in March. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision is chiefly there to identify subsales or the flipping of property.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Clydesdale are being a right pain. The Lake solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Clydesdale are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
2 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Lake concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Lake I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lake suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Lake. I have stumble upon a site which seems to have the ideal solution If it is possible to get all formalities done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
