We went with a local firm for my conveyancing in Farnham Common today. Looking through the Terms and Conditions I notewe are liable for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and appoint a web based lawyer advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Farnham Common?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to cover the conveyances that do not go ahead. Dont forget that these arrangements rarely cover disbursements for instance Farnham Common conveyancing search costs.

We were going to get a OIP from Aldermore this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Farnham Common solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.

Nationwide will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nationwide will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Farnham Common postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Farnham Common.
