If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Brondesbury what would it be?
We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Brondesbury conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
When it comes to lenders such as Barclays, do Brondesbury solicitors incur an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Brondesbury. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an advanced payment of £150. A couple of days later, the lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the TSB conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the TSB panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
