Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Sutton who conducted the legals two years ago asking for a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Bank of Scotland. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper online property lawyer?

I am acquiring a property mortgage free in Sutton. I have lived for the previous dozen years in Sutton. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the Sutton conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to do this.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Sutton. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Sutton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Sutton conveyancing firm to represent me?
You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Sutton conveyancing firm who can help.
