I was recommended to a solicitor who has sent a quote for just over a thousand pound for freehold conveyancing in Putney Vale. I am selling a modern detached home for £225,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Putney Vale?
The charges are a tad high. If you shop around you could shave off some of the expense by say £100 plus VAT. That being said, you maycome to rue choosing an an untested conveyancer.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Putney Vale. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Putney Vale
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Putney Vale is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Putney Vale are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Putney Vale you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Putney Vale may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.
When it comes to my conveyancing in Putney Vale should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee
(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Putney Vale conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the solicitor's time in submitting the funds this way.
