I am trying to find discount conveyancing in Cambridge. How do we get a quote?

In about four weeks we are anticipating to be finally moving from our detached house on the outskirts of Cambridge into our new home in Longthorpe . At what stage to choose a removal company?


Best practice is for home movers to wait before the removals company until you and the other side has agreed a formal home moving date that occurs once contracts are signed. Routinely removals companies might impose a rearrangement charge . For a local Cambridgeshire firm Removal Co, 48 Regent St, Cambridge, CB2 1FD Phone: 01480 352220 or Ellis & Bradley, 22 Gwydir Street, Cambridge, CB1 2LL Tel: 01763 241437.

We are buying a unique maisonette in a conservation area in Cambridge. How do we find data relating to the standard of upkeep?


Conservation areas are specified by the local Cambridge planning authority, who oversee conservation area concerns from paths and footpaths to the avoidance of advertising hoardings.

We are purchasing a restored chapel in the parish of Outwell. Is a chancel search specified?


Your Cambridge conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a residence where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
