We selected a high street solicitor for our conveyancing in The Ridgeway yesterday. After carefully reading the official terms of business I seewe are liable for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Would I be best advised to select a web based conveyancing brokerage promising no move no charge conveyancing in The Ridgeway?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to offset the conveyances that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that these schemes tend not to cover disbursements e.g. The Ridgeway conveyancing search costs.
As someone not used to the The Ridgeway conveyancing process what’s your top tip you can impart concerning the ownership transfer in The Ridgeway
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in The Ridgeway and elsewhere in North London is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the transaction. E.g., the seller, estate agent and sometimes your lender. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in The Ridgeway should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Every so often a third party with a vested interest may attempt to convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is slow. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do take action that is against your conveyancers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in The Ridgeway
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest The Ridgeway conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.

We expect to receive a DIP from Clydesdale this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Clydesdale recommend any The Ridgeway solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint The Ridgeway solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.
