The costs illustration is slightly on the expensive side. If you shop around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds.

It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Alderley Edge. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find the title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be with the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Alderley Edge involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Alderley Edge what would it be?

It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Alderley Edge conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Alderley Edge. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

When it comes to lenders such as Skipton, do Alderley Edge solicitors incur a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Alderley Edge is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Alderley Edge are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Alderley Edge you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Alderley Edge may determine 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 premises.

My uncle has suggested that I appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Alderley Edge. Should I use them?

No doubt the ideal way to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to get feedback from friends or family who have previously instructed the conveyancer that you are are thinking of instructing.

We have appointed a Alderley Edge conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (first time buyers) and have picked up in the engagement letter that they are not overseen by the Financial Conduct Authority. Am I right to be concerned or is that the norm with conveyancing practitioner?

We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They should be governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who have specific rules in relation to funds held by them.
