I am looking for a low cost conveyancing quote. What should we check?


Both high-street and online property lawyers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may pad the final bill. Fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and reasonable. They only apply to matters if the conveyancer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

I have been reading about doing your own conveyancing as a seller of a maisonette. Would it be a silly move to enact the legal conveyancing process on our own?


There are no reasons why a buyer cannot complete the greater majority of the legal and technical work without the help of a trained property lawyer in Halesworth.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Halesworth takes care of a large number of skilled tasks including chasing outstanding papers or checking the lease many of which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional. More importantly

DIY conveyancers will not have the correct professional indemnity insurance which practicing solicitors practices are bound to carry.


Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Halesworth, and should they be an issue?

Will we need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying next to priory land in Halesworth.


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Halesworth which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of a medieval church. Parochial Church Councils in Halesworth must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Halesworth ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Mary.
