How do I find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a residence?


Lack of clarity over this issue affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the terms which unwary buyers fail to check.


Might it be wise to do the conveyancing on a DIY basis on our own.


Theoretically speaking there are absolutely no arguments why you cannot do the your own conveyancing on your own. However, a conveyancer typically handles a large number of tasks e.g. approving pre exchange checklists or notifying all parties of exchange which are more safely handled with appropriate training. In any event however, legal practices are legally obligated to carry appropriate insurance that ultimately protects you from any losses you encounter.


We are purchasing a chapel in the parish of Sale. Should we get a chancel search?


The property lawyer may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some parish councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Rooftop Mortgages is going to be our mortgage lender, what do we need to know?


When taking out a mortgage to buy a property, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers in Sale should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher conveyancing costs for buyers in cases where the conveyancer cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal are able to act for the majority of lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.
