We need an affordable conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


Various firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs are often hiding in small print which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. Costslisted in the small print ought to be fair and be applicable if your solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Will I need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Stamford.


In Stamford, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards upkeep of nearby church property. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbeylands', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Stamford churches include All Saints' Parish Church, Christ Church, St George's and St Mary.


What kind of local authority searches in connection with the potential risk of possible flooding in the Lincolnshire region will my lawyer in Stamford carry out?

Do you have fast solicitors that advise on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Stamford?


Our CQS solicitors do frequently get instructed by bidders at auction. Conveyancers invariably suggest purchasers to decide on a their conveyancing solicitor well in advance of the property auction date to allow for a review of the auction legal pack,

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date, your lawyer should be geared up to carry out the auction conveyancing process in under 4 weeks as required by the conditions of sale.


Might my conveyancing quote for my Stamford purchase introduce any hidden costs?


Our solicitors never charge any additional charges for standard conveyancing legal work. While comparing quotes, be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be bound to.


The estate agent we are using in Buntingford has named a conveyancing whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use this firm?


An agent will be able to influence a conveyancing firm they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
