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.

I am the single recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Battle. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook requires 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 may be affected by that. Some lenders would take a sensible view as this clause is principally there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

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 Battle conveyancer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
