I went with a high street solicitor for our conveyancing in Corfe Mullen today. Reviewing the official terms of business I notewe are responsible for fees even if the movefalls through. Should I go with them or use a web based lawyer advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Corfe Mullen?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to counteract the transactions that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that such schemes rarely cover disbursements for example Corfe Mullen conveyancing search charges.
My wife and I are due to complete on the purchase of a house in Corfe Mullen but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors of £3k by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Nottingham will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
Any conveyancing practitioner being on a Nottingham approved list is obliged to advise Nottingham of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the price change to Nottingham then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nottingham and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Corfe Mullen.
I am considering applying for a UBS mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Corfe Mullen with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for UBS ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the UBS conveyancing panel, but UBS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.
Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Corfe Mullen. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we will need to put our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?

Can I be sure that the Corfe Mullen conveyancing solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Corfe Mullen getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.
I have just started marketing my basement flat in Corfe Mullen. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as normal given that all ground rent and service invoices should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

What is the name of the managing agents? Where a Corfe Mullen lease has fewer than eighty years it will impact the salability of the property.

Remember, in most cases you will be required to have been the owner of the property for 24 months in order to be entitled to extend the lease. Does the lease have onerous restrictions?
