IfI was to acquire a straightforward homein Ripley for cash and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Ripley?
The sole reduction in fees you would achieve is the costs for searches. A lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your vendors property lawyer, stamp duty return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage but it won't be meaningful.
My partner and I are downsizing from our house in Ripley and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Ripley conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Ripley. Having lived in Ripley for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
The deeds to my house are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Ripley 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your solicitor should be aware precisely where to look for all the suitable documentation so you may buy or sell your property without a hitch. If copies are not available, your lawyer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on your premises.
My business partner and I are hoping to take over a lease of a shop on the high street. Can you recommend lawyers offering no-sale-no costs for non-domestic conveyancing in Ripley for less than £2000?

If you are intending to purchase or lease a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail unit or a complete business we will put you in touch with the right solicitor. Regarding the charges this will depend on the structure and nuances of the proposed transaction. Please provide us with your contact information or call us so that we can provide you with a detailed commercial conveyancing calculation.
Is it best to use a Ripley conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am buying? We have a good friend who can deal with the legal formalities but they are based approximately 350kilometers drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Ripley conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to execute documents, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Ripley know how is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and the majority were content that must outweigh using an unknown Ripley conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Ripley based.
