Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Cheshunt who completed the legal work two years ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on the same type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a loan from Barnsley Building Society. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative property lawyer?
The charges are a bit high. If you are willing to spend time contrasting quotes you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, providing that you were content with the assistance the firm offered you couldcome to regret opting for an an unknown solicitor. If is important to ensure the firm can represent Barnsley Building Society.

My partner and I have just acquired a house in Cheshunt. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Cheshunt?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Cheshunt. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a form called a SPIF. answers turns out to be incorrect, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Cheshunt.
I am downsizing from our home in Cheshunt and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Cheshunt. Having lived in Cheshunt for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to 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 sickness)
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Cheshunt is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Cheshunt are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Cheshunt you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cheshunt 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.
