Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Sandringham who acted for me two years ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from National Westminster Bank. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Better the devil I know or should I try and find an alternative conveyancer?

Is it the case that all Sandringham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Aldermore conveyancing list of approved practices?
It is true that some lenders now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with RBS. Sandringham conveyancing solicitors were instructed. How long does it take for RBS to forward the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?
There is no definitive answer here. Have RBS done the valuation? Have you advised RBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the RBS conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I'm in the process of looking at houses in Sandringham and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a mortgage with Co-operative.

I am buying a new build house in Sandringham with a loan from HSBC Bank. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Sandringham I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Sandringham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
