We selected a Gorseinon based lawyer for our conveyancing in Gorseinon today. After carefully reading the small print it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for costs even if the dealdoes not happen. Should I go with them or choose an on-line solicitor practice who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Gorseinon?

I'm purchasing my first flat in Gorseinon with a loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
