AssumingI were to buy a simple residential homein Kingsnorth mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Kingsnorth?
Any savings you would make would be isolated to the disbursement for searches. The conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the sellers solicitor, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage but it will not be significant.
I am thinking of remortgaging my flat in Kingsnorth, does my lawyer have to be on the Barclays Solicitor panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Barclays will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as RBS, do Kingsnorth solicitors have to pay a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
I am expecting a OIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Kingsnorth solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Kingsnorth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
