I am trying to find a cheap solicitor quote to buy leasehold property. What do we need to consider?


Various firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any charges which are listed in the terms ought to be fair.


What will a Abingdon conveyancing solicitor do when the home we want to buy is within a conservation area and has ill-suited removal of chimney stacks installed?


A conveyancing solicitor will carry out searches ascertain if the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate consents.


Will we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Oddington, near Abingdon?


A conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


I am purchasing a 1920's house, is it that necessary that searches are ordered?


Searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries carried out in the interest of the purchaser. These searches do give much needed information and context, but refer specifically to facets affecting the legal title.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 I am thinking that property environmental searches aren't exacting enough?


Property environmental searches handled by a conveyancing solicitor in Abingdon should also include the more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you remain worried you could attempt to call a close neighbour.
