We chose a high street firm for our conveyancing in Grangetown yesterday. Reviewing the small print I notewe are responsible for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing company who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Grangetown?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise the conveyances that abort. Also remember that such schemes tend not to protect you from expenses by way of example Grangetown conveyancing search expenses.

Should our conveyancer be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Grangetown.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Grangetown. There are those who acquire a property in Grangetown, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will figure out the risks in Grangetown. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer may bring a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate answer. The buyer’s lawyers may also order an environmental search. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be made.
How does conveyancing in Grangetown differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Grangetown approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Grangetown tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Grangetown or who has acted in the same development.
