Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Trafford Park who completed the legal work 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing costs illustration based on the same type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Should I look for an alternative property lawyer?

How does conveyancing in Trafford Park differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Trafford Park approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Trafford Park typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Trafford Park or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Trafford Park is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Trafford Park are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Trafford Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Trafford Park may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
