Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Beckton who conducted the legals two years ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on the same type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a home loan from Chelsea Building Society. It looks as though am now being charged double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper internet conveyancer?

Completed the sale of my flat in Beckton last January yet the purchaser is telephoning me to say their solicitor is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?
Following your sale your lawyer is duty bound to forward the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. If applicable, your conveyancer should also evidence that the home loan has been paid off to the buyers solicitors. There are no post completion formalities unique to conveyancing in Beckton.
I'm the only recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Beckton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors 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 impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this obligation primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Beckton conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from UBS?
There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS done the valuation? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Planning on purchasing a house in Beckton. 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 Co-operative 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 Beckton solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
I'm buying my first flat in Beckton with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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 am four weeks into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the local agent to carry out the conveyancing in Beckton. We are not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?

Back In 2009, I bought a leasehold flat in Beckton. Conveyancing and Leeds Building Society mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing solicitor in Beckton who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?
First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to instruct a Beckton conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Beckton conveyancing firm to assist?
