My previous solicitor has quoted £1150 for no completion no fee conveyancing in Honor Oak. I am hoping to downsize from a purpose built detached home for £250,000. Are the quoted fees excessive? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Honor Oak?

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Honor Oak. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Honor Oak?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Honor Oak. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Honor Oak solicitor - who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Nottingham will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nottingham 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. You may wish to consider appointing your own Honor Oak surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
My offer on a detached house in Honor Oak has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Honor Oak. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Principality?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Honor Oak conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancer is on the Principality approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Honor Oak.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Honor Oak is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

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.
