I selected a Tilehurst based lawyer for our conveyancing in Tilehurst last week. After carefully reading the Terms I seewe are liable for costs even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and select an on-line conveyancing company advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Tilehurst?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to cover the cases that abort. You should be mindful that these deals tend not to cover expenditure e.g. Tilehurst conveyancing search fees.
The owners have rather brash vendors who has suggested a preliminary contract with a non-refundable deposit of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
Exclusivity contracts are agreements binding a home seller and purchaser granting the buyer exclusive rights to purchase the property for a set period of time. Essentially, a lock out is a document specifying that you should have a contract at a later date which is the main conveyancing contract. It tends to be utilised for buyer confidence though in some cases, the proprietor may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are various positives and negatives to using an agreement but you need to check with your solicitor but note that it may end up incurring extra in conveyancing charges. In light of this these contracts are not popular in relation to conveyancing in Tilehurst.

This question may be naive but I am new to the home buying as a first time buyer of a ground floor flat in Tilehurst. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Tilehurst?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Tilehurst. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Nottingham, do Tilehurst lawyers incur an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
We had appointed conveyancing lawyers located in Tilehurst on the Skipton solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental fee for handling the Skipton mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Skipton?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Skipton but by your Tilehurst property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Skipton panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I have today placed an offer on a leasehold flat in Tilehurst and the mortgage adviser that we are dealing with suggested his lawyer. He quoted a thousand pounds plus VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound steep?
Don't just go on 1 estimate. One should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Tilehurst. Then select one that you trust and crucially, is on the approved list of the lender that you have applied for a mortgage from.
