We selected a Middlesbrough based firm for our conveyancing in Middlesbrough yesterday. After carefully reading the Terms and Conditions I seewe are on the hook for costs even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and appoint a web based conveyancing company promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Middlesbrough?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to offset the conveyances that do not proceed. Dont forget that such arrangements rarely protect you from disbursements such your Middlesbrough conveyancing search expenses.

How up to date is your search tool for Middlesbrough conveyancing solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? Do Nottingham send you an updated list?
Middlesbrough conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nottingham directly.
I have been pointed in your direction by numerous property agents in Middlesbrough to locate a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your services over and above a competitor’s?
We don’t offer any commission for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I am an executor of my recently deceased parent's Will, with a property in Middlesbrough which will be marketed. The property has never been registered at HMLR and I'm advised that some EAs will insist that it is in place before they'll move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the situation you refer to it seems advisable to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
