How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate in Bath?


Many property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Charges listed in the small print should be fair.

Will you need searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing close to a 1300s church in Bath.


The Law Lords decision in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. Parochial Church Councils in Bath must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Bath churches include St John the Evangelist, St Michael & St Paul, Christ Church and St Bartholomew.


What do fixtures and fittings relate to?


New owners in Bath are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around what fixtures and fittings ought to be included. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements, confirming what will be sold with the property.
