I chose a Frizington based solicitor for my conveyancing in Frizington yesterday. Upon checking the official terms of business I seeI am liable for costs even if the dealdoes not go ahead. Would I be best advised to choose an internet lawyer advertising no completion no cost conveyancing in Frizington?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to offset those cases that fail to complete. Dont forget that such arrangements tend not to cover outlay for instance Frizington conveyancing search fees.
We have rather pushy vendors who has suggested a lock out agreement with a deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of main downsides with entering into any lock out agreement (occasionally known as an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not strongly advocated by Frizington conveyancing lawyers for this reason. The other main negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is very unlikely to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to prohibit the vendor completing the sale to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in restricted situations, the extra payment of penalties.

Our offer on a detached house in Frizington has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Frizington. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Frizington conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Clydesdale approved list. As to the next phase this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
