Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for low cost conveyancing.

A.

Various property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges will be included in the small print that unknowing property buyers and sellers have not reviewed Any additional fees included in terms of engagement should be fair. A quote must also state any disbursements.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Meppershall?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Abbots Langley's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

There are collections of helpful articles going into great depth on doing your own legal work. Do I really need to use a property lawyer in Abbots Langley ?

A.

There is no reason why you cannot carry out the legal work on your own.

which require training. Nonetheless firms and their solicitors must carry cover that ultimately protects you in the event of failures.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing near church land in Abbots Langley.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Abbots Langley which was once owned by a 'lay impropriators' can be liable for repairs to a medieval church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Abbots Langley property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.

Ecclesiastical properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include St Lawrence.

Q.

To complete on our property purchase ASAP, how can we organise a fast completion in Abbots Langley?

A.

Crucial to buying faster is to instruct a proactive solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, ask yourself the following: Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Bank of Scotland, is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in higher legal costs for buyers. We are able to act for many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
