Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in New Rossington who conducted the legals 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Clydesdale. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate fees appear a bit high. If you you were to look around you may be able to reduce the fees marginally by say £100 plus VAT. That being said, if you were satisfied with the legal work the firm offered you mightcome to regret choosing an a cheaper conveyancer. If is important to check that the conveyancer can act for Clydesdale.

I have a terraced Georgian property in New Rossington. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in New Rossington and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. New Rossington is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in New Rossington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in New Rossington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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 premises.
Am I better off to choose a New Rossington conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can conduct the conveyancing but her office is approximately 350kilometers drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street New Rossington conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute paperwork, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary.
