I was recommended to a solicitor who has quoted £1400 for leasehold conveyancing in Rise Park. I am looking to sell a purpose built detached home for £250,000. This seems over the top. Is it in excess of the average fee for conveyancing in Rise Park?
The estimate does seem a tad overpriced. Where you are happy to spend time comparing quotes you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as £125. That being said, you mightcome to rue opting for an an unknown lawyer. Don't forget to check that the firm can also act for your lender.

We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.
We were going to get a AIP from Nottingham this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Rise Park solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Rise Park solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Rise Park. Conveyancing is daunting 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.

Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. 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. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my aunt I am disposing of a house in Newport but I am based in Rise Park. My solicitor (approximately 250 kilometers awayhas requested that I execute a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Rise Park who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Rise Park based
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Rise Park. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Rise Park - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Rise Park conveyancing firm to help?
Where there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to decide the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Rise Park residence is Flat b 14 Kemble Road in May 2014. The Tribunal assessed the value of the premium payable for the lease extension to be £9,761 This case related to 1 flat.
