How do I get a cheap solicitor for purchasing a property?


The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees may increase the final bill. Extra charges found in the small print needs to be reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


If I plan to purchase in the parish of Whetstone, will we need a chancel search?


Your solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Bedford Hill's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


What makes Bedford Hill property legal work to take such a long time? The last solicitor we used felt very slow.


The conveyancing process will occasionally be held up. We strive to diminish the impact of these delays whenever

we can do so by chasing for prompt responses. Reasons for delay can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.


Should I get a chancel search if my family are buying near a priory built in the 13th Century in Bedford Hill?


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Bedford Hill Church council. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.


Should I get a property surveyor to examine the property purchase?


It is recommended that you arrange a home buyer survey. Many defects will impact a property. These can include cavity wall tie failure or wet rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


In regards to the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920, I am asking whether flood searches aren't detailed enough?


The lawyer in Bedford Hill should get additional informative flood risk searches if the first conveyancing searches spots a any kind of local Bedford Hill flood risk.

For extra history it may be sensible to speak to a next door neighbour.


I am going to a property auction and will need to ensure fast conveyancing, what should we do?
