I was recommended to a solicitor who has sent a quote for £1400 for no completion no fee conveyancing in Dagenham. I’m looking to sell a Victorian house for £125,000. Is this overpriced? Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Dagenham?

When will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Dagenham and do I need to attend the lawyers branch?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Dagenham you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we work with supply a national conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone.

The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Dagenham)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to appoint a Dagenham based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the chances are that give you one of their panel lawyers if you take up the "fee-free" offer. Contact the bank to ask if they allow a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Dagenham.
Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Dagenham. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dagenham and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
