I instructed a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Chichester today. Upon checking the official terms of business I seewe are liable for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I go with them or use an internet solicitor practice offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Chichester?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to neutralise those conveyances that abort. You should be mindful that such offerings rarely cover expenses e.g. Chichester conveyancing search charges.

About to purchase maisonette in Chichester. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Chichester conveyancer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Chichester is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore 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 Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Chichester 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
As long as you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and get up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.

My solicitor (approximately 235 miles awayneeds me to execute a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Chichester who can attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Chichester based
