I was recommended to a conveyancer who has quoted £1200 for no completion no fee conveyancing in Marlow. I am hoping to sell a newly refurbished detached home for £225,000. This seems overpriced. Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Marlow?
The quote is slightly on the expensive side. If you shop around you might reduce the fees slightly by perhaps a hundred pounds. On the other hand, you maycome to rue opting for an an untested solicitor. Don't forget to check that the firm can also act for your lender.

Do banks and building societies provide you with an approved list of Marlow conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel?
Marlow conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Kent Reliance directly.
It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Marlow concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 asset 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.
I'm buying a new build house in Marlow with a mortgage from Santander. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it could jeopardize my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the bank approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the mortgage company conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the mortgage company solicitor panel.
