No Sale No Fee Conveyancing Solicitors in UK - Our Guarantee

It is always decidedly stressful when your UK property transaction goes wrong at the last minute. Innumerable reasons may contribute to a transaction aborting, for instance the chain collapsing or a poor HomeBuyer Report.

With the Fridaysmove 'no move, no fee' promise, you will not pay any solicitors fees if your property transaction does not go ahead.

Your UK solicitors deposit can be transferred to another purchase or sale and you will just need to cover any third party disbursements, like property searches.

The Myth of Online Conveyancing

Home movers who have used traditional local conveyancers may think that low fees advertised on a property legal website are almost too good.

An assumption made by many who avoid 'online conveyancing' is that there will be disadvantages to choosing a lower-cost online solicitor. In reality, excellent solicitors who market online exist, as do expensive solicitors albeit with a local office.

Our network of solicitors deliver the benefits of both approaches, namely the convenience of a solicitor you can meet in person, and low-cost conveyancing fees.

Remortgage Conveyancing

These UK solicitors can act for all building societies and lenders in every county of England and Wales.

New Build Conveyancing

With the UK property market improving and exisiting stock becomes scarce, new builds are increasingly sought-after. Pros when purchasing new build property include energy efficiency, but some of the disadvantages include mortgage difficulties, particularly if construction is delayed.

In some cases, new build homes are marketed with free or discounted legal fees, regardless of the lower cost of such any offer, it is essential that your solicitor provide truly independent advice. Opting for the developer's preferred conveyancer may create an unavoidable conflict of interest.

Development in UK

The impact of Local Development Projects

All local authorities will have development plans for their areas within their planning departments and these are not released to Conveyancers as part of the local search result, although reference is commonly made to their availability for inspection. We recommend that you must visit the local authority to inspect these plans in the event that you have any concerns regarding the Councils proposals for development within their area, particularly if your property benefits from views over, or is adjacent to, open land.

Your Solicitor will be aware of the procedures involved with properties that are new build, as procedures can be a little different. A completion date has not always been decided by the time of contract exchanges. Any cash incentives that are offered by the developer should be looked into by your Conveyancer.

Trees in UK

What is a Tree Preservation Order (TPO)?

Written consent of the Council must be obtained before trees at the property subject to a Tree Preservation Order are lopped, topped or felled. Tree Preservation Orders are made by the Council under the Town & Country Planning Act 1990, and associated Regulations, in order to protect individual trees, groups of trees, and trees in defined areas or woodlands.

With few exceptions (the exemption being fruit trees in commercial orchards), it is an offence to top, lop, fell, uproot, wilfully damage or wilfully destroy a tree protected by an Order, without the formal written consent of the Local Planning Authority. If you remove trees or do work to them without permission you could be prosecuted. You or your tree contractor can usually apply for work to protected trees on standard forms. If you want to remove trees, you may be required the Council to plant replacements of the same species and in the same location.

Trees within a Conservation Area

Trees make an important contribution to the character of the local environment. Anyone proposing to cut down, top or lop a tree in a conservation area, whether or not it is covered by a tree preservation order, has to give notice to the local authority. The authority can then consider the contribution the tree makes to the character of the area and if necessary make a tree preservation order to protect it.

Conservation in UK

Conservation Areas

If you live in a conservation area, you have to obtain permission before making changes which would normally be permitted elsewhere, to ensure that any alterations do not detract from the area's appearance. These changes include certain types of cladding, inserting dormer windows, and putting up satellite dishes which are visible from the street.

Under legislation introduced in 1995, local authorities can make further restrictions on the kind of alterations allowed, depending on how these might affect the key elements of buildings in the conservation area. Examples might be putting up porches, painting a house a different colour, or changing distinctive doors, windows or other architectural details. The local authority has to have good reason for making these restrictions, and must take account of public views before doing so.

To many owners, any tighter restrictions or additional costs, such as for special building materials, are more than outweighed by the pleasure they derive from living in such an area.
