I was referred a solicitor who has given a fee estimate £1200 for freehold conveyancing in Nantyglo. I am selling a Georgian house for £200,000. This seems overpriced. Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Nantyglo?
The costs illustration is fractionally on the steep side. Where you are content to expend time contrasting quotes you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps a hundred pounds. That being said, you maycome to rue choosing an an untested solicitor. Don't forget to enquire that the conveyancer can also act for your mortgage company.

Are the Nantyglo conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the HSBC conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by HSBC?
Nantyglo conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from HSBC directly.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Nantyglo in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a loan on this type of property.

I have been recommended by a number of property agents in Nantyglo to get a quote from a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your site over and above a competitor’s?
We don’t offer any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the property agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint their recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Nantyglo
We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Nantyglo conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will give their estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
