My partner’s sister is a solicitor. I suspect that I'll be able to get friends and family fee for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what kind of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Wood Green?
You should contrast pricing. Do use our search tool on this page. The charges seem to contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between law firms as is true with the vast majority of professional services.
I am downsizing from our house in Wood Green and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wood Green. We have lived in Wood Green for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I only have Fifty years unexpired on my flat in Wood Green. I need to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What options are available to me?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to locate the lessor. For most situations a specialist would be useful to conduct investigations and to produce a report which can be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Wood Green.

Myself and my partner have just had an offer agreed on a apartment and had meeting on Wednesday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to choosing a conveyancer that if they are not on their approved list of conveyancing practitioners then we will incur an extra fee of about two hundred pounds. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to appoint a solicitor to act on their behalf in addition to the one we select on our behalf and we are liable for their costs. I have requested the Post Office to furnish me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved solicitors but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. What would be the best way of going about this?
Ask the Post Office what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Then ask the conveyancer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for the Post Office before. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with the Post Office. Another option is to use our search facility and we may be able to locate a conveyancer in Wood Green on the panel for the Post Office.
