I chose a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Slade Green recently. Reviewing the Terms and Conditions I notewe are liable for charges even if the movefalls through. Would I be best advised to select an on-line solicitor practice promising no completion no charge conveyancing in Slade Green?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to counteract those cases that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that such promotions rarely cover outlay e.g. Slade Green conveyancing search charges.
It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Slade Green. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to track down the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your lender or they could be archived with the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Slade Green relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Slade Green solicitor having made sure that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Skipton will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Skipton 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. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Slade Green postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Slade Green.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Slade Green agreed to, the sellers do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Slade Green. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Co-operative?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Slade Green conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Co-operative and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Slade Green.

Searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Slade Green.
