We selected a high street firm for my conveyancing in Bredbury today. Reviewing the small print it is apparent thatI am responsible for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select a web based lawyer advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Bredbury?

As someone unfamiliar with the Bredbury conveyancing process what’s the number one tip you can give me concerning the legal transfer of property in Bredbury
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Bredbury or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the seller, property agent and on occasion the lender. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Bredbury should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.
Every so often a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
My grandmother passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Bredbury. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to UBS, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?
If you plan to refinance then UBS will insist on your using a conveyancer on the UBS conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your UBS conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the UBS mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Bredbury 4 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bredbury
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.
