My previous conveyancer has given a fee estimate £1200 for leasehold conveyancing in Lymington. I am selling a Victorian house for £275,000. This seems too much. Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Lymington?

The only saving you would achieve is the Lymington conveyancing searches. A lawyer still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the sellers conveyancing practitioner, stamp duty submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it won't be a lot.

I can see plenty of here concerning conveyancing in Lymington but can you isolate your top tip for finding the right conveyancer in Lymington

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Lymington conveyancing quote. 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Lymington. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Lymington?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

is it true that all Lymington solicitor practices on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Lymington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Lymington is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Lymington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lymington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lymington 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 property.

As co-executor for the estate of my aunt I am disposing of a house in Swansea but reside in Lymington. My solicitor (who is 200 miles from mehas requested that I sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Lymington to witness and place their company stamp on the document?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Lymington
