Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Chesham Bois who completed the legal work 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper online property lawyer?
The costs illustration is fractionally on the high side. If you shop around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps a hundred pounds.

About to purchase a new build flat in Chesham Bois. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Chesham Bois
Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Chesham Bois is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Chesham Bois are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Chesham Bois you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Chesham Bois 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 property.
I have just appointed agents to market my basement flat in Chesham Bois.Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed however I have just had a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as usual as all rents and maintenance payments should be apportionedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
