We decided to go with a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Almondsbury last week. Upon checking the terms of engagement it is apparent thatwe are responsible for costs even if the movedoes not go ahead. Should I go with them or appoint a web based lawyer promoting no completion no charge conveyancing in Almondsbury?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to offset those cases that fail to complete. Do bear in mind that such promotions generally do not cover expenses for instance Almondsbury conveyancing search expenses.

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Almondsbury. I I would like to check if they are on the Nottingham Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you advise?
The first thing to do is contact your conveyancer and enquire whether they can act for the bank. Otherwise you can get in touch with Nottingham Building Society who may be able to assist.
is it true that all Almondsbury conveyancing solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Santander conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Almondsbury. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Yorkshire BS be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease does not meet these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Almondsbury.
We were going to get a OIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Almondsbury solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Almondsbury solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
When it comes to my conveyancing in Almondsbury should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee
(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Almondsbury conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the solicitor's time in submitting the funds this way.
