How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Chatteris.


Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any fees listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable. A quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What individual searches should my Chatteris conveyancing solicitor get when instructed on a Chatteris home?


The customary legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches, like a Utilities report.

We are in a contract race situation, and need ensure fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?


Crucial to a fast transaction is to instruct a proactive and experienced solicitor. That said, there are several tasks you could do. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with the solicitor
  • replying to your solicitor by phone, fax or email
  • organising your finances


Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? We are buying a property in Chatteris.


The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must contribute towards church repairs. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area include St Peter & St Paul.


The estate agent has named the property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?


It is not uncommon for agents to refer one or more conveyancing firms. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


Which local authority is responsible for Chatteris?


Chatteris is located in Fenland District Council, Fenland Hall, County Road, March, Cambridgeshire PE15 8NQ, contact: 01354 654 321


For our lender, we have chosen Northern Rock - is there anything we need to be aware of?


Buyers in Chatteris should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
