Our family solicitor has given a fee estimate £995 for fixed fee conveyancing in Pitsea. I am selling a Victorian property for £225,000. Is this too much? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Pitsea?

The person best placed to address this question is your solicitors who will hopefully determine whether they better off negotiating with the bank, seller’s conveyancers, property agents or indeed all three given the history of your conveyancing as of today.

What does a local search tell me about the house we're purchasing in Pitsea?
Pitsea conveyancing often starts with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company such as Xpress Legal The local search plays a central role in many a Pitsea conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search should reveal data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject headings.
Given that I am about to part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Pitsea I wish to talk to a conveyancer concerning theconveyancing prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Pitsea.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Pitsea should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.
I have just appointed agents to market my garden apartment in Pitsea. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
It best that you pay the service charge as usual because all rents and service charges should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I acquired a studio flat in Pitsea, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Pitsea with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2097
You have 74 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
