I was recommended to a lawyer who has quoted £1350 for leasehold conveyancing in Wilton. I am hoping to sell a Edwardian detached home for £250,000. This sounds expensive. Is it in excess of the average fee for conveyancing in Wilton?

That being said, you couldcome to rue opting for an a cheaper solicitor. Don't forget to check that the conveyancer can also act for your bank.

My wife and I purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Wilton. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to determine if these alterations were previously refused?
Your conveyancer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Wilton will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain alterations or necessitated the permission of another owner. Some extensions require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Wilton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in March. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is chiefly there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of property.

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Bank of Ireland approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be regulated by the CLC.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial property in Wilton and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides security of tenure to business lessees, granting the dueness to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we instruct their preferred solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Wilton
It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your own,trusted Wilton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.
