We decided to go with a Brandesburton based firm for our conveyancing in Brandesburton last week. Upon checking the official terms of business I seeI am responsible for costs even if our purchase aborts. Should I ditch them and choose an on-line solicitor practice offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Brandesburton?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise the transactions that do not proceed. Also remember that these offerings tend not to protect you from expenditure for instance Brandesburton conveyancing search charges.
Some advice if I may. My Brandesburton solicitor is advising me that he has toorder Brandesburton conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Virgin Moneysolicitor panel. Is my solicitor right?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a mortgage company your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Brandesburton conveyancing searches.

In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser may commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an misleading response. The buyer’s solicitors should also commission an enviro report. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be conducted.
