I need a discount conveyancing estimate. What are the risks?


Various firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in small print which buyers may have not read carefully Extra fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. They come into force only if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


If we are intending to buy in the parish of Holy Trinity Minories, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


A solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
