I can see plenty of here about conveyancing in Leigh but what is your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Leigh

It would be unwise to be tempted by the cheapest Leigh conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay 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 ahead of the deal.

Are all Leigh Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel?

It is true that some lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their panels.

We were going to get a DIP from Coventry BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Leigh solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Leigh solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Leigh is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Leigh are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Leigh you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Leigh 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.

Should I be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Leigh conveyancing firm?

As is the case with many service providers, often input from family and friends can be very helpful. Yet there are lots of players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all suggest conveyancers to instruct. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that some banks specify a panel list of law firms you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your home move.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a residence in Swansea but I am based in Leigh. My lawyer (who is 200 miles awayrequires that I execute a stat dec prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Leigh to attest and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you should not be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are located in Leigh
