We need a cheap solicitor to buy a property. Can you assist?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges needs to be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


When you are buying in Crabtree, do you need a chancel liability search?


Chancel liability can require some residential property owners to cover the cost of upkeep of church property in the locality. Several sources are used to determine liability in Crabtree, including local maps.


When do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?


In simple terms, earlier is preferable. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm to act for you on your Crabtree transaction for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can

be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.


In regards to the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England, we are concerned that flood risk searches might not be thorough enough?


Flood risk searches carried out by a Crabtree lawyer should also include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

You can speak to a local resident for additional assurance if you are still worried.


Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?


It is not always clear whether a quoted cost is a fee or disbursement. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.


For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £741,000 residence, what should we organise to speed up our conveyancing process?

Which particular property searches conveyancing searches does a solicitor in Crabtree order when instructed on a Crabtree flat?


The customary procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Search and occasionally less common searches, which might include Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).
