I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Nat West. I would like to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Theale. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel allow for conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Please could you vouch for a TSB allowed Theale conveyancing lawyer finish our house move within under 3 weeks? Would it be better to use a high street Theale practice or an internet conveyancer?
We would be happy to suggest some excellent Theale conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the high street in Theale. Visit a couple of firms and ask to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a fee estimate. Discuss your deadline together with the reasons and get an assurance on your deadline. Appoint the lawyer that appears most efficient.
We are downsizing from our house in Theale and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Theale conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Theale. We have lived in Theale for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Can you offer any advice when it comes to appointing a Theale conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?
When appointing a solicitor for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Theale conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you talk with several firms including non Theale conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be of use:
What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing?
I acquired a 1st floor flat in Theale, conveyancing having been completed 6 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Theale with a long lease are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease terminates on 21st October 2093
With 72 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
