Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £772k property? We need to find affordable conveyancing.


Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the small print. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on a quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

If I am buying in the parish of Cheriton Bishop, should we order a chancel search?

Whether you are buying a home in Merton or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be taken out. In Merton's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a home where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
