We instructed a Hatton based firm for my conveyancing in Hatton recently. Reviewing the Ts and Cs it is apparent thatI am liable for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and choose a web based conveyancing brokerage offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Hatton?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to neutralise the transactions that abort. Do bear in mind that these offerings generally do not cover disbursements for example Hatton conveyancing search fees.
AssumingI was to purchase a freehold homein Hatton for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Hatton?
The only saving you would make on is the disbursement for searches. The solicitor still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors conveyancing practitioner, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a mortgage but it won't be a lot.

I am assisting my niece sell her flat in Hatton. Does the conveyancing solicitor order the EPC or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates remained a compulsory part of moving house. An EPC must be commissioned in advance of the property being put on the market. This is not something that conveyancers normally arrange. Where you are using a Hatton conveyancing solicitor they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable local assessors
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Hatton conveyancing lawyers were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from TSB?
There is no definitive answer here. Have TSB conducted the valuation? Have you informed TSB as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the TSB conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Santander are being problematic. The Hatton solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Santander are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander 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.
Given that I am about to spend 450k on a property in Hatton I wish to talk to a conveyancer regarding thehouse move in advance of giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Hatton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Hatton should be the figure that you end up paying.
Is planning consent needed to convert a house into multiple appartments in Hatton? This has occurred to a property opposite to my home in Hatton and was not aware of it happening until the works were done.
Planning permission is needed for splitting a single dwelling in Hatton into flats but possibly not for reverting back to single dwelling-house so, simply put, yes,a it is required.
