We went with a local firm for our conveyancing in Hawkshead yesterday. Upon checking the small print I seewe are liable for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I go with them or select an on-line solicitor practice promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Hawkshead?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to counteract those transactions that do not go ahead. You should be mindful that these deals tend not to cover expenditure such as Hawkshead conveyancing search charges.

About to purchase maisonette in Hawkshead. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Hawkshead conveyancer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
Should our solicitor be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Hawkshead.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Hawkshead. There are those who buy a house in Hawkshead, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Hawkshead. The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the vendor to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a compensation claim as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A buyer’s solicitors will also order an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations should be conducted.
