I chose a Ashbourne based firm for our conveyancing in Ashbourne last week. After carefully reading the official terms of business I seeI am responsible for costs even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select a web based conveyancing company who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Ashbourne?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to offset those transactions that fail to complete.
