My family lawyer has quoted £1150 for no sale no fee conveyancing in Seaton. I’m hoping to downsize from a Edwardian detached home for £175,000. Is this over the top? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Seaton?

We are due to exchange buying a property in Seaton but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree reparation from the vendor of six thousand pounds in the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Clydesdale will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
The solicitor being on the Clydesdale approved list is obliged to advise Clydesdale of any variations to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Seaton.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Seaton building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Seaton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
As long as the property lawyer is on the lender panel, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
About to purchase flat in Seaton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

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 Seaton property lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
