Just been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Trefriw who conducted the legals two years ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from Britannia. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Better the devil I know or do I seek out a cheaper internet firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The quote is slightly on the steep side. Where you are happy to expend time contrasting costs you might decrease the fees slightly by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, if you were content with the assistance the firm provided you couldlive to rue choosing an an untested lawyer. Don't forget to be sure the conveyancer can represent Britannia.

Having spent time scouring moneysavingexpert.com for a conveyancing lawyer in Trefriw, most post that I must look for a CQS kitemarked solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?
The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices issued by the Law Society. Membership achievement establishes a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon: * the integrity of the senior responsible officer and other key conveyancing staff * the firm's adherence to good practice management standards * compliance with best practice conveyancing procedures via the scheme protocol It covers numerous organisations who conduct conveyancing in Trefriw.
I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Trefriw for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Trefriw conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Trefriw is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Trefriw are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Trefriw you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Trefriw may decide 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 property.
When it comes to my conveyancing in Trefriw should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee
(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Trefriw conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the conveyancer's time in submitting the funds this way.
