We previously appointed conveyancers based in Berkhamsted on the Yorkshire BS solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate charge for the legal aspects of the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Yorkshire BS?

This charge is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Berkhamsted solicitor. Some firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial property in Berkhamsted and how can you help?

The particular law that you refer to gives security of tenure to commercial lessees, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a renewal lease and remain in occupation at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we use their chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Berkhamsted

It is unlikely the owners are behind this. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Berkhamsted conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.

My husband is buying a leasehold property in Berkhamsted. Conveyancing quotes are averaging around £1650. Is that reasonable?
