Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Cudham who completed the legal work 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Barclays Direct. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative property lawyer?
The quote is slightly on the expensive side. If you you were to look around you could trim some of the cost by perhaps a hundred pounds.

Don't forget to be sure that the firm can represent Barclays Direct.

I have paid off my mortgage with Nationwide. I assume I don't need a Cudham property lawyer on the Nationwide panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Nationwide mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Nationwide mortgage from the register. Nationwide, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Nationwide has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nationwide has instructed the Land Registry to do so
It is not clear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Cudham bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Cudham conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancer is on the bank approved list, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent told us that the seller will only proceed if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Cudham
We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Cudham conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide their estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
