I opted for a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Belsize Park yesterday. Upon checking the terms of engagement I noteI am liable for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and instruct an internet lawyer promoting no move no charge conveyancing in Belsize Park?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to cover those cases that abort. Also remember that such arrangements rarely protect you from expenditure by way of example Belsize Park conveyancing search fees.
AssumingI were to buy a straightforward propertyin Belsize Park mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Belsize Park?
The sole saving you would make on is the Belsize Park conveyancing searches. A lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with the vendors conveyancer, stamp duty return, register the ownership etc. A marginal saving might be made by not having to register a charge however it will not be a lot.
After looking at mumsnet.com for a conveyancing solicitor in Belsize Park, most comment that I should use a CQS accredited solicitor. What is CQS?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in home moving process, trusted by some of the UK's major mortgage companies.

There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Belsize Park but how do I know who I should use?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Belsize Park conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Belsize Park. I have a mortgage offer with Skipton. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
I currently have a mortgage with Kent Reliance for my property in Belsize Park. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Kent Reliance?
You must advise Kent Reliance in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. You need not do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel lawyer.
