I was recommended to a conveyancer who has sent a quote for £1350 for freehold conveyancing in Shotton. I’m looking to sell a newly refurbished property for £175,000. Is this too much? Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Shotton?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you shop around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, you couldcome to regret opting for an an untested conveyancer. Don't forget to check that the solicitor can also act for your bank.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Shotton is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Shotton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Shotton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Shotton 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.
