AssumingI was to buy a simple residential housein Pinner Green for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Pinner Green?
Any savings you would gain will be isolated to the disbursement for searches. A conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with the vendors conveyancer, SDLT submission, register the property etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Pinner Green but how do I know who's good?
Do not opt for the cheapest Pinner Green conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I am assisting my sister sell her house in Pinner Green. Will the solicitor arrange an energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to coordinate?
Following the demise of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy performance certificate needs to be to hand in advance of the property being marketed. It is not as aspect of the sale process that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Pinner Green conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established local assessors
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Pinner Green. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Pinner Green?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Pinner Green. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the owner’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
My wife and I are planning on selling our home in Pinner Green and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Pinner Green. Having lived in Pinner Green for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
My wife and I have a terraced Victorian property in Pinner Green. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Santander to clarify?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Pinner Green and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.
My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Pinner Green
It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Pinner Green conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will provide their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
