We hired a Greenwich based solicitor for my conveyancing in Greenwich last week. Reviewing the fine print it is apparent thatI am on the hook for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to select a web based firm promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Greenwich?

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Greenwich? Is this really necessary?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Should you are unwilling to hand over ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you.

My wife and I are disposing of a Greenwich house we inherited ten years ago in 2010. I have over ten years conveyancing know-how and, now retired, intend to do the conveyancing. The buyer's solicitor has informed me that their building society will not allow you to do your own conveyancing as they require the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.
