The fee calculation issued of £470 has surprised me as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s simply a bog-standard refinance.

My house in Olney is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will the conveyancer need to be required to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

Please help - my lawyer says that lack of planning permission insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Olney conveyancing?
The right level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Virgin Money. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
Can I be sure that the Olney conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

I'm buying my first flat in Olney with a loan from Chelsea Building Society. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it will jeopardize my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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 am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Olney I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Olney for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I have been advised by a number of estate agents in Olney to get a quote from a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your site over a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
