We decided to go with a Garstang based solicitor for my conveyancing in Garstang yesterday. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs it is apparent thatI am responsible for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to instruct an internet firm offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Garstang?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise the transactions that fail to complete. You should be mindful that these deals generally do not cover disbursements for instance Garstang conveyancing search expenses.
My partner and I are planning on selling our home in Garstang and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Garstang. We have lived in Garstang for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I used Stirling Law several years ago for my conveyancing in Garstang. Now, I need the files but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my grandmother I am disposing of a property in Newport but reside in Garstang. My lawyer (based 200 miles awayrequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Garstang to attest this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Garstang based
