How do we get affordable conveyancing?


The confusion over this point catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied home owners Applicable disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote


My local agent has put forward the solicitor that they have used before. Do I need to instruct them?


Agent referrals are a commonplace route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


What causes Oldham property legal work for a purchase to have so many delays?


The conveyancing process will occasionally be delayed. We seek to reduce their consequences where feasible to do so. Reasons for delay include slow solicitors acting for the other side.


Will we need a house survey?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that you instruct a home surveyor to carry out a survey. There are many defects that will impact a property, including roof spread. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


If I plan to purchase near Oldham, in the parish of Oldham, do we need a chancel search?


A solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


How is stamp duty calculated in Oldham and what should we budget for a £666000 property?
