Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Elm Park who completed the legal work 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative conveyancer?
The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you are happy to expend time scrutinising costs you might reduce the fees marginally by as much as £100 plus VAT.

How does conveyancing in Elm Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Elm Park come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because builders in Elm Park tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Elm Park or who has acted in the same development.
