If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Moss Nook what would it be?

It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Myself and my husband have just had an offer accepted on a house and had an appointment on Wednesday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to appointing a conveyancer that if they are not on their approved list of conveyancers then we will incur a further fee of £250+. This is because they will then have to appoint a solicitor to act for them in addition to the one we choose to act for ourselves and we are liable for their costs. I have requested the Post Office to provide me with a list so I can request estimates only from their approved conveyancers but was told that I need to check with each individual lawyer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a list online?
You should ask the Post Office what their panel criteria is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the conveyancing practitioner of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for the Post Office in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just double check with the Post Office. Alternatively please use our search tool and we may be able to locate a conveyancing practitioner in Moss Nook on the approved list for the Post Office.
