I am purchasing a house and the lawyer has raised the issue of Chancel Repair to which the house may be liable as it falls into the area of such a church. She has mentioned insurance. Is this strictly necessary for conveyancing in Stanmore

Completion is due on the sale of our £325,000 garden flat in Stanmore in 8 days. The freeholder has quoted £324 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Stanmore?
Stanmore conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes often involves the buyer’s lawyer sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address these enquiries the majority will be willing to do so. They may levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to complete the sale of your home.

My wife and I have had DIP from Yorkshire Building Society who said that they will lend up to £300k. At what point do we need to instruct a lawyer for conveyancing? Stanmore is where we are purchasing.
It would be wise to appoint a conveyancer now so that the conveyancer can open the ledger so they can commence their ID checks etc. As and when you wish them to start work they will seek a deposit normally about £225. That would normally be after you have the mortgage offer and valuation report, nevertheless should you wish to expedite the process you can start the ball rolling sooner even though you may be risking some money.
