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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Pevensey Bay conveyancing search fees, etc).

Regarding the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market.

five months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Pevensey Bay completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 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 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.
Am I right to be wary by brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Pevensey Bay conveyancing firm?
As is the case with lots of service providers, often suggestions from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are lots of parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all put forward lawyers to appoint. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there exists a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that most lenders specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your home move.
