I have been advised by my conveyancer that flying freehold insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Finchampstead conveyancing?

We previously selected conveyancers locally in Finchampstead on the Santander solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further fee for handling the Santander mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Santander?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Santander but by your Finchampstead property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Santander panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Finchampstead off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Nationwide. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

A colleague advised me that where I am purchasing in Finchampstead I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Finchampstead around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Finchampstead Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Finchampstead Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Finchampstead.

Developers have put forward a property lawyer and I've sought a quote from them. They are almost £250 less expensive than my local Finchampstead lawyer. Should I use them?

Developers normally have panels of property lawyers who are quick and who know the seller’s documentation and conveyancer. As many developers offer an incentive to use their approved conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer will not put forward a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they demand an exchange inside a month. The argument for not agreeing to use the suggested lawyer is that they may be reluctant to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. If you worry that this may be the case you should stick with your high street Finchampstead lawyer.
