We need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate. What should be watch out for?


Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A quote for conveyancing in Plymstock must also state any disbursements to be paid. Costs found in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.


Should we order a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Brixham, near Plymstock?


The conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the building being bought is found. Through some parish councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Brixham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Do I need to select the property solicitor named by our estate agent?


Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace route to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
