We selected a Datchet based lawyer for my conveyancing in Datchet recently. Reviewing the fine print I notewe are on the hook for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or use an on-line firm who offer no completion no charge conveyancing in Datchet?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to counteract those conveyances that do not proceed. Also remember that these arrangements generally do not cover outlay for example Datchet conveyancing search expenses.
We have very pushy vendors who has insisted on a lock out agreement with a payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of contract is not the norm in Datchet, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no certainty that just because the vendor has signed a lock out agreement they will sell to you. They may be motivated to break the contract if they receive sufficient incentive to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may obtain by breaking the agreement, however morally condemnable that may be.

I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Datchet for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Datchet conveyancing specialists.
I am purchasing a new build house in Datchet benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about the extras as it would put at risk my loan with Yorkshire Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
