My best friend’s step-father is a conveyancing practitioner. I anticipate that I can be offered friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what level of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Middlewich?
Do contrast pricing. Make use of our search tool on this site. You will notice that estimates do vary but service levels do are distinct between conveyancers as is true with most professions.

Is it the case that all Middlewich solicitor firms on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be governed by the CLC.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Middlewich. My financial adviser suggested a property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £200. Not long after, the property lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Lloyds panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Middlewich for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Middlewich conveyancing specialists.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Middlewich I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Middlewich in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
I was recommended by a number of selling agents in Middlewich to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any financial incentive for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
