We had appointed solicitors locally in Upper Norwood on the RBS solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a further fee for the legal aspects of the RBS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by RBS?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Upper Norwood is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Upper Norwood are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Upper Norwood you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Upper Norwood may ascertain 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.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Upper Norwood. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Upper Norwood - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can I apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Upper Norwood conveyancing firm to assist?

Why can't I complete our conveyancing in Upper Norwood on May bank holiday?
This is due to the fact that on completion the funds needs to be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s solicitor and at present this can only occur on a working day. So you can't complete on a saturday or sunday either.
