I opted for a high street firm for our conveyancing in Helston last week. Upon checking the Ts and Cs I noteI am responsible for fees even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and choose an internet conveyancing company who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Helston?

I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Helston for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
