I was recommended to a lawyer who has quoted £1700 for no completion no fee conveyancing in Parbold. I’m looking to sell a newly refurbished detached home for £225,000. Is this overpriced? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Parbold?
The charges are a little high. If you shop around you might reduce the fees slightly by perhaps a hundred pounds. On the other hand, you couldlive to regret opting for an a cheaper conveyancer.

We were going to get a DIP from Nationwide this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nationwide recommend any Parbold solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Parbold solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, UBS are being a right pain. The Parbold solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but UBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that UBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why UBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Intending to buy a maisonette in Parbold. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Parbold lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Parbold. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is registered - and most are in Parbold - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Can you tell me if there are any major works on the horizon that will likely add a premium to the service costs? Best to be warned whether a new roof is being installed or some other major work is due in the foreseeable future to be shared by the leaseholders and may well dramatically impact the level of the service costs or require a one off payment. Generally speaking the cost for major works are not built into the maintenance charges, albeit that there some managing agents in Parbold obliged tenants to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific intention of building a fund for larger works.
Myself and my partner have just had an offer agreed on a house and had an appointment on Tuesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They advised us that when it comes to selecting a lawyer that if they are not on their approved list of solicitors then we will have to pay out an extra fee of £250+. This is because they will then have to instruct a conveyancer to act on their behalf as well as the one we choose to act for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their fees. I have requested Leeds Building Society to provide me with a list so I can request estimates only from their approved conveyancers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a list online?
