I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Should I go for for a nationwide conveyancer or a high street Twickenham conveyancing lawyer?

Twickenham conveyancers often have connections with mortgage brokers and agents, local authorities, valuers and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Having a well rounded experience in the local area also helps too.

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Twickenham but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Twickenham conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I'm the only recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Twickenham. The Twickenham property was put into my name in December. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. Some lenders would take a pragmatic view as this clause is primarily there to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.
Is it the case that all Twickenham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing list of approved firms?
Some major banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
We are selling our home in Twickenham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Twickenham conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Twickenham. We have lived in Twickenham for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I used Arc property Solicitors a few years ago for my conveyancing in Twickenham. I now require my file but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Twickenham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Twickenham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
