We instructed a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Ladywell recently. Reviewing the terms of engagement I seeI am liable for fees even if the sale aborts. Would I be best advised to appoint an on-line conveyancing company offering no move no charge conveyancing in Ladywell?

It would be advisable to instigate your search sooner rather than later.
