How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Winchester?


Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms. Any charges should be clearly defined and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How much will searches be?


The cost of Winchester searches can vary, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.


We plan to buy a home in the parish of Carisbrooke. Will a chancel search be needed?


Your property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Winchester's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.


Do we need to be nervous about gazumping?


The practice of deciding to reject an offer which has been accepted after a new buyer makes a more attractive offer is known as gazumping. There is almost always a chance of being gazumped. You should instruct your solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.
