Why would one use a Selhurst conveyancing firm given that online conveyancers are cheap by comparison?
Its a good idea to scrutinise conveyancing costs in Selhurst and you should seek a competitive fee calculation but don’t be focused with sourcing the cheapest Selhurst conveyancer. Appointing the right conveyancer can mark the difference between a smooth and a stressful house move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from an experienced conveyancer. An e-mail can never take the place of a telephone discussion and can never replicate a face to face appointment. The firms that we work with will allocate you a qualified and experienced conveyancing solicitor who can handle your conveyancing from beginning to end, providing a level of hand holding that you rarely receive from an web based conveyancer. He or She will inform you as to progress and keep you informed. Should you need to call the firm you will be sure who you need to speak to and we'll endeavour to make sure that you're not left wondering what's going on.
AssumingI were to buy a simple residential housein Selhurst for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Selhurst?
Any savings you would make will be limited to the Selhurst conveyancing searches. A solicitor is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with your vendors lawyer, SDLT return, register the ownership etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a mortgage but it will not be meaningful.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Selhurst completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 purchasing my first flat in Selhurst with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it would affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
