I decided to go with a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Stapleford last week. Upon checking the fine print I seeI am liable for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based conveyancing brokerage advertising no completion no cost conveyancing in Stapleford?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to offset those conveyances that abort. Do bear in mind that these promotions tend not to cover outlay for instance Stapleford conveyancing search expenses.

Will my lawyer be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Stapleford.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Stapleford. There are those who purchase a property in Stapleford, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Stapleford. The conventional set of property information forms given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. A purchaser’s solicitors should also carry out an enviro report. This will indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be initiated.
Should I stop the direct debit for my mortgage with Leeds Building Society as soon as a completion date for my home sale in Stapleford has been agreed?
