There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in Harwich.


Various conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which home owners may have not read carefully Any charges needs to be reasonable and clear. They come into force only if the solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed unseemly window frames to the maisonette which I think may break Reading Market Place conservation area criteria.

The local agent has offered the solicitors firm which they often use. Must I instruct this solicitor?


Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon way for home buyers to find a solicitor.

Will we need a chancel liability search? I am buying a house in Harwich.


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Harwich which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of specific local church buildings. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Church of England properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include St Nicholas.
