How do I get a cheap solicitor in Charmouth to sell a home?


Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees may increase your solicitor's invoice. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


The estate agent has offered a conveyancing which they often use. Is it a good idea to use them?


Agent recommendations are a common way to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


Will a property report compiled by the solicitor in Charmouth give details about the relevant rates of council tax for a Band G maisonette prior to exchange of contracts?

Council tax charges for Charmouth are published on the West Dorset council website. At the time of authoring (08 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,069.00

Is it recommended that I get a chancel liability search? We are buying in Charmouth.


Owners of property near to local churches are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Andrew.


How long does it take my conveyancing solicitor to handle all of the legal work on a semi detached house we are buying in Charmouth?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks, which can be affected by a number of issues such as the speed of the sellers solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.

Is your panel of solicitors able to complete fast the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Charmouth?


We work with auctioneers throughout Dorset and frequently do the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. It is a smart decision for buyers at auction to appoint a fast conveyancing solicitor as quickly as they can to allow sufficient time for a full report of the auction legal papers prior to the property auction.

After the auction day itself the lawyer is thoroughly focused on briskly completing the conveyancing inside a as tight time frame as conventionally required .
