How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need low cost conveyancing.


Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Additional fees needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


What search enquiries will the Christchurch solicitor order when acting on a Christchurch building?


The standard legal protocol is to get Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search as well as any specific local Christchurch searches e.g. a SIM Search.


Which local authority is responsible for Christchurch?


Christchurch is located in Bournemouth Borough Council, Town Hall, Bourne Avenue, Bournemouth BH2 6DY phone: 01202 451451


We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of Cheselbourne. Do we need a chancel search?


Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel

liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


When in the process should you arrange a conveyancing solicitor?


If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable, as there are several tasks that can be performed straight away. Promptly instructing a firm for a purchase enables you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.


We are purchasing a £479k, what will be determined for stamp duty?


The Stamp Duty you must pay is dependent on the property's value. It is £14370 on a £479k home.*

*This information accurate as of January 2013


In 3 months we are intending to be finally moving from our semi detached property just outside Christchurch to our next flat in Bridport , at what stage to instruct a removals firm?


Most solicitors tend to recommend that sellers delay organising removals until after the contracts have exchanged as prior to this in all probability an absolute home moving date wont have been formally agreed. Some home removals firms add an additional a rearrangement penalty .

I am bidding at a property auction and would like get fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up the transaction?

  • answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible
  • organising your finances
  • keeping in regular contact with your solicitor
