Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Stansted costs more?
The conveyancing fees for a leasehold property in Stansted is often more expensive when contrasted to a freehold acquisition or disposal. This is due to the supplemental time necessary in corresponding with the freeholder and managing agents to collate the information concerning whether the rent and maintenance charges have been discharged and whether there are any large sums expected to be spent in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.
Can I be sure that the Stansted conveyancing solicitor on the Virgin Money panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Stansted seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees.

About to purchase maisonette in Stansted. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Stansted conveyancer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Stansted on 24/7/2020, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Stansted concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I was advised by numerous property agents in Stansted to select a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services ahead of another?
We don’t make any commission for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
