We went with a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in Fenny Stratford today. Upon checking the terms of engagement I noteI am liable for costs even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to appoint an on-line solicitor practice promising no move no charge conveyancing in Fenny Stratford?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to neutralise the transactions that do not go ahead. Also remember that such arrangements generally do not cover disbursements for instance Fenny Stratford conveyancing search expenses.

There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays conducted the survey? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am purchasing a property in Fenny Stratford. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Clydesdale have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Clydesdale your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease does not comply with these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Fenny Stratford.
Planning on purchasing a house in Fenny Stratford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Fenny Stratford conveyancing practitioner is on the Santander conveyancing panel.
