Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Rickmansworth. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Rickmansworth?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Rickmansworth. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

My solicitor has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Rickmansworth conveyancing?

The right level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Rickmansworth. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £200. Not long after, the lawyer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Santander conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Santander panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for delay in Rickmansworth house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Rickmansworth.

It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Rickmansworth concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am looking for a conveyancing practitioner in Rickmansworth for my sale. Is there any facility to review a firm’s complaints history with the profession’s regulator?

Anyone can search for published Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations resulting from investigations started on or after 1 January 2008. Visit Check a solicitor's record. For records about the period before 1 January 2008, or to check a firm's record, phone 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 any week day save for Tuesday when lines open at 9.30am. International callers, call +44 (0)121 329 6800. The regulator sometimes recorded call for training reasons.

I have recently placed an offer on a leasehold flat in Rickmansworth and the estate agent that we are using suggested his lawyer. He quoted nine hundred pounds excluding VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound steep?

Don't just go on a single quote. One should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Rickmansworth. Then select one that you trust and just as important, is on the approved panel of the mortgage company that you are sourcing your mortgage from.
