We were about to retain a conveyancing solicitor in Walton recommended by you but stumbled across alternative costs illustrations via the web appear less expensive – why is this?

Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Walton?
If you are buying a property in Walton your solicitor will ask you to provide them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Ordinarily this is asked for to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. When the deposit is as part of the sale price then this will be required immediately ahead of contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is needed will be payable shortly before completion.
What can a local search tell me concerning the property we're buying in Walton?
Walton conveyancing often starts with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for example PSG The local search is essential in every Walton conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any nasty once you have moved into your property.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Walton. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Walton
Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
I have been advised by a couple of local selling agents in Walton to locate a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t make any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
I would like to let out my leasehold apartment in Walton. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Your lease dictates relations between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Walton do not prevent subletting altogether – such a provision would undoubtedly devalue the flat. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
I am the registered owner of a first flat in Walton. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium payable for a lease extension?
Where there is a missing landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the amount due.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Walton residence is 147 Redford Close in June 2012. The Tribunal determined the lease extension premium to be at £4,200 This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 82.93 years.
