We went with a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Plaistow today. Upon checking the Terms I seeI am liable for charges even if the movedoes not happen. Should I go with them or appoint an internet firm promising no move no charge conveyancing in Plaistow?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to offset those cases that abort. Also remember that these schemes generally do not protect you from disbursements for instance Plaistow conveyancing search costs.
The vendors of the house we are looking to purchase hired a conveyancing solicitor in Plaistow who has suggested a lock out agreement with a non-refundable deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are two primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (also referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it can distract from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated amongst Plaistow conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to be issued with an injunction to stop the owner disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in rare scenarios, the extra payment of damages.
I am purchasing a semi-detached house in Plaistow. Conveyancing solicitors are said to be ‘a necessary evil’ but can I do it myself?
