We hired a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Canvey Island recently. Upon checking the Terms it is apparent thatwe are responsible for costs even if the movedoes not happen. Should I ditch them and choose a web based conveyancing company advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Canvey Island?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to cover the cases that abort. Also remember that these promotions tend not to protect you from outlay such as Canvey Island conveyancing search expenses.

- Get a new solicitor to to deal with the conveyancing, remembering to check they are Norwich and Peterborough Building Society approved.

I am assisting my sister sell her house in Canvey Island. Will the conveyancing solicitor commission the energy performance certificate or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments became a compulsory component of moving property.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Co-operative. Is it usual for Co-operative to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Canvey Island is approved on their conveyancing panel? Co-operative have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were impressed that must surpass using an unfamiliar Canvey Island conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
