How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £682,000 residence?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast conveyancing process?


Contacting a proactive solicitor is crucial to faster conveyancing. Consider the following:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.


We are buying a rectory in the parish of York St Mary Bishophill senior. Is a chancel search important?


Regardless of the Parson Cross parish in which you are purchasing, the solicitor responsible for your move should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Parson Cross, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a home

where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


First Active is our mortgage lender, what do we need to check?


Purchasers need to be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.


Handling the legal work without the help of a lawyer in Parson Cross looks to be possible as a seller of a home , but would it be actually be prudent ?


There are no reasons why you cant apply this approach and embark on the legal work without Parson Cross conveyancer. In reality however, a conveyancer is familiar with a huge array of assignments including chasing completion statements or identifying conservation area breaches which really need the relevant training. Critically have a go conveyancers will not be covered by sufficient indemnity cover that solicitors practices always have.


Do I need to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying in Parson Cross.


The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Parson Cross Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in Parson Cross include St Bernard and St Cecilia & St Bernard.


As a result of the serious flooding in York, Leeds and across Yorkshire we are wondering if environmental searches might not be detailed enough?


A qualified Parson Cross solicitor will apply for thorough environmental searches if the initial searches flag up a risk of flooding in Parson Cross.

For extra assurance you can get in touch with a neighbour of the property.


When in the process should we speak to a solicitor in Parson Cross?


Simply, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Promptly instructing a firm could mitigate the chance of the transaction aborting.
