If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Eynsham what would it be?
It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Eynsham conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Eynsham conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the UBS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
UBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually UBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Eynsham postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with UBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Eynsham.

We are in the midst of selling our flat in Eynsham. Conveyancing lawyers are doing their job but we have been asked to pay an extortionate amount by the landlord. So far we have paid £225 for a leasehold management information and then a further £200 plus VAT for additional questions supplied by the buyers solicitor.
Your conveyancer will unlikely have any control over the level of the charges for this information but the average fee for the information for Eynsham leasehold premises is £360. For Eynsham conveyancing sales it is customary for the seller to cover the costs. The landlord or their agents are not duty bound to answer such questions although many will agree to do so - albeit often at high prices out of proportion to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no statute that mandates fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any statutory time limit by which they are duty bound to provide the information.
