I went with a Ogmore Vale based solicitor for our conveyancing in Ogmore Vale today. Upon checking the official terms of business it is apparent thatwe are responsible for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and choose a web based conveyancing brokerage advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Ogmore Vale?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to offset the transactions that abort. Do bear in mind that such schemes generally do not protect you from expenditure for example Ogmore Vale conveyancing search expenses.
My wife and I are purchasing a flat in Ogmore Vale. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we have to put funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

Is it the case that all Ogmore Vale CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Nationwide conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
Some major lenders now utilise CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
I have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Ogmore Vale. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?
Coventry BS must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel firm.
3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Ogmore Vale took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I've recently bought a leasehold house in Ogmore Vale. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
