My partner’s brother is a property lawyer. I am hopeful that I will receive friends and family rates for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what kind of fees should I be paying for conveyancing in Lancaster?

We are downsizing from our property in Lancaster and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Lancaster. Having lived in Lancaster for many years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Lancaster completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 premises 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.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Lancaster and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides protection to business tenants, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Lancaster is one of the hundreds of areas of the UK in which the firms we work with are located
I am four weeks into a leasehold purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Lancaster. I am am starting to be disappointed with the level of service. Can you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
They would have to be really bad to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you must inform them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are re-sent. Your new conveyancer needs to be on the banks panel to avoid added expenses and complications. That should be your first question of the new conveyancers.
