We opted for a Winkleigh based firm for our conveyancing in Winkleigh recently. Going through the official terms of business I seewe are liable for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and instruct a web based firm promising no completion no cost conveyancing in Winkleigh?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to neutralise the transactions that abort. Also remember that such promotions tend not to cover outlay for example Winkleigh conveyancing search costs.

Please help - my lawyer advises that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Winkleigh?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Winkleigh conveyancing practitioners were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Barclays?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays conducted the valuation? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Winkleigh. I have a mortgage offer with HSBC. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Winkleigh completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
