I was referred a conveyancer who has sent a quote for £1700 for freehold conveyancing in Frant. I’m hoping to downsize from a Edwardian detached home for £225,000. Is this expensive? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Frant?
The charges are a tad high. Where you are prepared to expend time scrutinising fee on a like for like basis you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds. On the other hand, you couldlive to regret choosing an an unknown conveyancer. Don't forget to ensure that the conveyancer can act for your mortgage company.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Frant conveyancing solicitors were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Nottingham?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nottingham completed the survey? Have you informed Nottingham as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nationwide are being a right pain. The Frant solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nationwide are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Our sealed bid on a property in Frant has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Frant. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Frant conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers will apply for a home loan with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Frant.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Frant is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Frant are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Frant you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Frant may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
I'm converting the mortgage on my primary home to a BTL mortgage with Barclays Direct and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on further property. The area we are talking about is Frant. Will your solicitors be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and link together the transactions?
Make use of our search tool on this site to check that the conveyancers are approved by both banks. On the basis that they are the solicitor should be able to connect the two deals but you should talk with you conveyancer and communicate your desired outcome and needs.
A couple of weeks ago I was told by my mortgage company that their approved lawyers operate no move no charge basis for conveyancing in Frant. I had a purchase abort and now the solicitors have invoiced for search fees! They are stating that the fees are seperate!
Frant conveyancing search costs are separate expenses not solicitors costs as these are due to independent parties.
