I hired a local firm for my conveyancing in Bellingham last week. Reviewing the Ts and Cs I notewe are on the hook for fees even if the sale aborts. Should I go with them or use a web based lawyer promising no completion no charge conveyancing in Bellingham?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to counteract the transactions that fail to complete. Dont forget that these arrangements generally do not cover disbursements e.g. Bellingham conveyancing search charges.

I am considering applying for a Coventry BS mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Bellingham with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Coventry BS ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Coventry BS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
I have been told that property searches are a common reason for hinderance in Bellingham house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Bellingham.
