I hired a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Eccles today. Upon checking the Ts and Cs it is apparent thatwe are responsible for charges even if the dealfalls through. Would I be best advised to use a web based solicitor practice promoting no move no charge conveyancing in Eccles?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to counteract the cases that fail to complete. Also remember that such deals tend not to cover expenditure for example Eccles conveyancing search costs.
We see that you have a search directory identifying firms on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a commission if I retain them for our own conveyancing in Eccles?

How do I find out if the solicitor conducting my conveyancing in Eccles is on the bank’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Clydesdale thus spending £175.00 in another set of conveyancing bill.

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Eccles what would it be?
Do not opt for the lowest Eccles conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying 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 being advised by my solicitor that chancel insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Eccles?
The right level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with RBS. Eccles conveyancing solicitors were chosen. How long does it take for RBS to issue the offer to the lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have RBS done the survey? Have you advised RBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the RBS conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

Are there common problems that you come across in leases for Eccles properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Eccles is not unique. All leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain sections are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Insurance obligations Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
You could encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Accord Mortgages Ltd, Skipton Building Society, and Clydesdale all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to withdraw.
I invested in buying a basement flat in Eccles, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Eccles with a long lease are worth £207,000. The ground rent is £60 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2078
With 57 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £28,500 and £33,000 as well as legals.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
