My fiance’s brother is a conveyancing practitioner. I hope that I'll be able to get mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees should I be paying for conveyancing in Turvey?

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Turvey. The vast majority the properties are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Turvey?
You are putting yourself at risk in refusing to carrying out Turvey conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would strongly advise in no uncertain terms that your lawyer conducts them. Where timings and price are top of your concerns you should discuss with your lawyer about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you
As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Turvey what is the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Turvey
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Turvey and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, property agent and even potentially the lender. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Turvey is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.
There is a definite increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer ahead of all other parties when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
I am purchasing a new build house in Turvey with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it would put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Turvey I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Turvey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
I am looking at a couple of maisonettes in Turvey which have about forty five years left on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease shortens the marketability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence.
