I am trying to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. How do we get a quote?


The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are frequently hidden in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


We plan to buy a residence in the parish of Biddestone St Nicholas. Will a chancel search be required?


A conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Is a Homebuyer Report advisable when we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

We suggest that you book a home surveyor when you plan to buy in Abbeymeads. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, including corrosion of pipework.

Our lender will be Paragon Mortgages - what will I need to consider?


Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if their conveyancer cannot act for the lender. We, however, can act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
