We went with a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Helston yesterday. Going through the terms of engagement I noteI am liable for charges even if the dealdoes not go ahead. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based conveyancing company promoting no completion no charge conveyancing in Helston?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to counteract those cases that fail to complete. Do bear in mind that these schemes generally do not cover expenses such as Helston conveyancing search costs.
Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that could impact a commercial estate in Helston?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Helston will carry out a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Helston. The report sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Helston.
For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Helston it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately can cause delays to Helston commercial conveyancing transactions as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not carried out for residential conveyancing in Helston.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent advised that the seller will only move forward if we use the agent's preferred conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Helston
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is counter productive.
