Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Woodcote Green. What is the rationale as to why all Woodcote Green lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?
As unjust as it may seem for banks to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s standpoint, the flip side is that lenders are increasingly anxious and regard it necessary to shield themselves against illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

My partner is purchasing a studio flat in Woodcote Green. He has received an estimate by the conveyancer suggested by the estate agents and it came to £1245 . It was 7 years ago I sold and bought a house and the fee was £440. Have costs really gone up that much?
What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for example Woodcote Green searches, land registry fees, etc)
