How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Brent for a £417k residence?


Numerous solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Extra costs needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Will my South Brent conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band B house before exchange?

If we are purchasing in the parish of Bovey Tracey, should we order a chancel search?


Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on new owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

A significantly more involved dedicated flood risk search, such as the Landmark search, may be proposed by your lawyer in South Brent, if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches highlight a flood risk.
