My fiance’s step-father is a solicitor. I anticipate that I'll be able to get friends and family pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Salford?

When it comes to conveyancing in Salford seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.
I currently have a mortgage with Barclays for my property in Salford. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Barclays?
Your original mortgage agreement with Barclays will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Barclays’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Barclays directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Salford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. 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 Salford lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.
We are downsizing from our property in Salford and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Salford. We have lived in Salford for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? 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 health insurance to cover that same illness)
I have been recommended by three or four local estate agents in Salford to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your site ahead of another?
