I opted for a Yarm based solicitor for my conveyancing in Yarm yesterday. Upon checking the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am on the hook for costs even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to instruct a web based solicitor practice offering no move no charge conveyancing in Yarm?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to neutralise the cases that fail to complete. Dont forget that such deals generally do not cover expenses for example Yarm conveyancing search fees.
It is is a decade since I bought my home in Yarm. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your lender or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Yarm relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.
It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Yarm concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am downsizing from my home. My past solicitors have shut. I am in need of a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Yarm if that makes things easier.

I need to instruct a conveyancing lawyer in Yarm for my home move. Can I review a firm’s complaints history with the legal regulator?
