I need an affordable conveyancing estimate. What do we need to consider?


Several firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may inflate your final bill. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Fees should be fair.


I plan to buy a converted chapel in Ryhope. Will a chancel search be compulsory?


Your conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search. Although some parish councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


What does our conveyancing searches be?


Thornaby searches ranges in cost. In Thornaby, the standard bundle of searches included a mining search and a local authority search.


Regarding the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England we are wondering whether conveyancing searches (environmental) might not be exacting enough?

A qualified lawyer in Thornaby will advise you to include informative environmental searches if the first conveyancing searches identifies a Thornaby flood risk.

You could always get in touch with a next door neighbour for some additional insight.
