We hired a Potton based lawyer for my conveyancing in Potton recently. Upon checking the Ts and Cs I noteI am liable for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and use an internet conveyancing company who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Potton?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to cover those transactions that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such offerings tend not to protect you from expenditure such your Potton conveyancing search charges.
There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Potton but how do I know who's good?
We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Potton conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Potton. Conveyancing is required. What are my next steps?

All auction property will have a corresponding legal set of papers. This will include evidence of title and search results.

You should give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.
