My previous lawyer has given a fee calculation of £1150 for fixed fee conveyancing in Wennington. I am looking to sell a newly refurbished detached home for £200,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it above the average fee for conveyancing in Wennington?

That being said, you mightlive to rue opting for an a cheaper solicitor. If is important to enquire that the solicitor can represent your mortgage company.

Last September we completed a house move in Wennington. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been carried out for conveyancing in Wennington?

The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Wennington. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be incorrect, then you may have a claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Wennington.

I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in Wennington. I I would like to check whether they are accepted on the Barnsley Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you assist?

The first thing you should do is contact your conveyancer and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise please call Barnsley Building Society who may be able to confirm.

I am buying a victorian detached house in Wennington. Our aim is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will legal due diligence on the property include checks to see if these works are allowed?

Your conveyancer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Wennington can on occasion identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain changes or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I'm the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Wennington. The Wennington property was put into my name in December. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in December. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook obliges 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 could be caught by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of properties.

We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Clydesdale as we wish to conduct a loft conversion to our home in Wennington. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Wennington solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Clydesdale don't usually appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Wennington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent has warned us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct their preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Wennington

We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your preferred Wennington conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.
