Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Neath Abbey who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from Barclays . I am now being charged double. Should I look for a cheaper online conveyancer?
The quote is slightly on the high side. If you are happy to invest time contrasting quotes you could decrease the fees slightly by as much as a hundred pounds.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Clydesdale Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Neath Abbey?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Neath Abbey but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Neath Abbey conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
We are aiming to move home in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Neath Abbey. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across this site.
On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from your estate agent but this can only happen once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. After that you will need to inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Neath Abbey or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Neath Abbey.
I am expecting a OIP from Lloyds this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Neath Abbey solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Neath Abbey solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.
I only have 62 years remaining on my lease in Neath Abbey. I now want to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. 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 enable the lease to be lengthened by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to find the lessor. On the whole a specialist may be helpful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Neath Abbey.
I purchased a garden flat in Neath Abbey, conveyancing formalities finalised 6 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension?

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
