Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Purley who conducted the legals 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Barclays . It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative conveyancer?
The estimate does seem a little on the high side. If you shop around you could trim some of the expense by perhaps a hundred pounds. That being said, providing that you were satisfied with the service the firm offered you mightlive to rue opting for an an untested lawyer. Remember to ensure the conveyancer can also act for Barclays .

Some advice if I may. My Purley solicitor is advising me that he has toorder Purley conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCsolicitor panel. Is my lawyer correct?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Purley conveyancing searches.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, UBS are being a right pain. The Purley solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but UBS are insisting on 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.

We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the property agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Purley
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Purley conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give their estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
