I went with a high street firm for my conveyancing in Theale yesterday. After carefully reading the small print I noteI am on the hook for fees even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and use an on-line solicitor practice advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Theale?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to counteract the cases that abort. You should be mindful that these deals tend not to protect you from outlay such as Theale conveyancing search charges.
I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Theale yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Theale and has limited impact for conveyancing in Theale but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.
I am purchasing a right to buy a flat in Theale. Can I do my own conveyancing?

Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender.

I have a mortgage with Skipton for my property in Theale. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Skipton?
You must advise Skipton in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Skipton will allow you to rent 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 Skipton directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel firm.
Our sealed bid on a semi in Theale has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Theale. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance started?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Theale conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance approved list. As to the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Theale.
