I went with a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Ravenglass last week. After carefully reading the Terms it is apparent thatwe are responsible for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or use a web based firm promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Ravenglass?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise those cases that do not go ahead. Also remember that these offerings generally do not cover disbursements for instance Ravenglass conveyancing search costs.
What is the first thing I need to know about purchase conveyancing in Ravenglass?
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Ravenglass and elsewhere in Cumbria is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the transaction. For instance, the seller, selling agent and sometimes your mortgage company. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Ravenglass is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the process whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
Every so often a potential adversary may attempt to persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do something that is against your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
We are purchasing a apartment in Ravenglass. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we will need to send money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

Is it the case that all Ravenglass CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their panels.
