We decided to go with a local firm for my conveyancing in Handsworth yesterday. Going through the official terms of business I seewe are liable for fees even if our purchase doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based conveyancing company promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Handsworth?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to cover the cases that do not proceed. Dont forget that such schemes generally do not protect you from outlay such your Handsworth conveyancing search costs.
