My best friend’s brother is a conveyancing practitioner. I expect that I'll be able to get mate’s pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what level of fees should I be paying for conveyancing in Broxbourne?
Do compare pricing. Do use our comparison tool on this site. The amounts may vary but the service one can expect differ between property lawyers as is the case with most professions.
I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Broxbourne. The vast majority the flats have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Broxbourne?
You would be taking a significant risk in not carrying out Broxbourne conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would seriously advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. Where speed and cost are top of your issues you should consider with your conveyancer about the viability of search insurance
It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Broxbourne. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down the title documents. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who handled your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Broxbourne involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
We are downsizing from our property in Broxbourne and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Broxbourne. We have lived in Broxbourne for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
Expecting to complete next month on a garden flat in Broxbourne. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they are sending me a report on Monday. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations.

You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
Why is New Build conveyancing in Broxbourne more costly?
Buying a new build home is significantly different from the normal house purchase conveyancing in Broxbourne. For a start housebuilders ordinarily require contracts to exchange inside a short timeframe, the result being a a great deal of pressure on your lawyer to make sure everything is in order. In addition new build conveyancing often involve examination of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Mortgage company requirements are also more demanding. Due to the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
