We hired a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Weymouth yesterday. After carefully reading the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for charges even if the dealdoes not happen. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing company offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Weymouth?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be higher to offset those transactions that abort. Do bear in mind that these offerings rarely protect you from expenses e.g. Weymouth conveyancing search expenses.
