My friend's dad is a conveyancer. I am hopeful that I can be offered friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Haddenham?

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Haddenham but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Haddenham conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying 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. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, UBS are being problematic. The Haddenham solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but UBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that UBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why UBS 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.
Planning on purchasing a house in Haddenham. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Haddenham property lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel.
I moved into my apartment on 10 March and my personal details are still not registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Haddenham expressed confidence that it would be recorded in less than a month. Are transfers in Haddenham uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Haddenham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the premises so 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am buying my first flat in Haddenham with a mortgage from Leeds Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will impact my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we use their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Haddenham
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this requirement. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to use your preferred Haddenham conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.
