IfI were to buy a straightforward housein Winton mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Winton?
Any savings you would make will be limited to the disbursement for searches. A solicitor is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with the sellers lawyer, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. Winton conveyancing practitioners have been instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Virgin Money?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Virgin Money conducted the valuation? Have you advised Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Winton. 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 Coventry BS 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 Winton solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Winton with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Winton I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Winton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
