Q.

A.

Many firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

A.

Legally speaking there is absolutely no reason at all why a home seller cant go down that route and undertake the bulk of the legal process yourself.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a huge number of jobs including chasing replies to requisitions and checking the lease many of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional.

If I am intending to buy near Westhoughton, in the parish of Westhoughton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Westhoughton or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Westhoughton's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.
