We chose a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Kingsbury last week. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I noteI am responsible for charges even if the sale aborts. Should I ditch them and select a web based solicitor practice promising no move no charge conveyancing in Kingsbury?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to cover those transactions that do not go ahead. Please beware that these promotions generally do not cover expenses for instance Kingsbury conveyancing search fees.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Kingsbury. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Kingsbury?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
I have been told by my conveyancer that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Kingsbury?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
My partner and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from HSBC as we intend to conduct alterations to our home in Kingsbury. Do we need to appoint a bricks and mortar Kingsbury solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
HSBC would not normally appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

The benefit of a high street Kingsbury conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you.
