You can find many firms of conveyancing organisations advertising what appear to be cut price.

Is it the case that all Truro solicitors on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Virgin Money approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the organisation would be overseen by the CLC.
Intending to buy a house in Truro. 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 Leeds Building Society 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 Truro conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Truro I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Truro in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
