The conveyancer who helped my last purchase has given a fee estimate £1350 for freehold conveyancing in Upney. I’m selling a Georgian detached home for £275,000. Are these estimated fees excessive? Is it above the average fee for conveyancing in Upney?

I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Upney for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Upney conveyancing specialists.
I am purchasing a new build house in Upney with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Nottingham Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the seller will only go ahead if we use their preferred lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Upney
It is unlikely the owners are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Contact the sellers directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your own,trusted Upney conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
