Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Whalley Range who acted for me 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Britannia. I am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative property lawyer?
The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you you were to look around you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds. On the other hand, if you were content with the service the firm gave you couldcome to regret choosing an an untested solicitor. Don't forget to check the conveyancer can represent Britannia.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Whalley Range is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Whalley Range are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whalley Range you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whalley Range may ascertain 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.
