I chose a local firm for my conveyancing in Shoreditch today. After carefully reading the official terms of business I notewe are liable for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or instruct a web based solicitor practice promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Shoreditch?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be higher to cover the cases that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such offerings generally do not cover expenditure by way of example Shoreditch conveyancing search charges.

Some major banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance.

I've digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Shoreditch solicitor - who is on the RBS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
RBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually RBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Shoreditch surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Our offer on a property in Shoreditch has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Shoreditch. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Shoreditch conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their lawyer to move forward with searches.
