I instructed a Whiston based solicitor for our conveyancing in Whiston recently. After carefully reading the official terms of business I noteI am responsible for fees even if the movedoes not go ahead. Would I be best advised to select a web based firm promising no move no charge conveyancing in Whiston?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to counteract those cases that do not go ahead. You should be mindful that such arrangements generally do not cover disbursements by way of example Whiston conveyancing search expenses.
I am selling our house in Whiston and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Whiston lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Whiston. Having lived in Whiston for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I used Stirling Law a few years ago for my conveyancing in Whiston. I now require my file however cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry.

How does conveyancing in Whiston differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Whiston approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Whiston usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Whiston or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Whiston is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Whiston are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whiston you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whiston may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
I have been Googling for Whiston competitive conveyancing fees. Can I be assured that all the Whiston law firms that are listed on your website are on the lender conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices listed on our site have assured us via an online form that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Whiston firm being on the bank conveyancing panel is incorrect.
