I was referred a conveyancer who has sent a quote for £995 for no move no fee conveyancing in Penyffordd. I’m hoping to downsize from a Edwardian house for £300,000. Is this over the top? Is it in excess of the average fee for conveyancing in Penyffordd?
The estimate does seem a tad overpriced. Where you are happy to spend time contrasting costs you could reduce the fees marginally by perhaps £125. That being said, you maycome to rue choosing an a cheaper solicitor. Remember to enquire that the firm can represent your mortgage company.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Penyffordd. The Penyffordd property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. Most banks would take a pragmatic view as this clause is primarily there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.
Does a directory service exist listing Nationwide panel solicitors in Penyffordd on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

My husband and I are in the process of viewing apartments in Penyffordd and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a lawyer appointed at this point? I am planning to take a mortgage with Yorkshire BS.
You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Penyffordd took place. I have checked the Land Registry website 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.
