Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges may inflate the final invoice. Additional fees listed in the small print should be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

As a consequence of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall we are wondering whether property conveyancing searches may not be exacting enough?

You can contact a neighbour or local resident for some added local information.

Q.

Are the many conservation areas in Abridge likely to affect us?

A.

The regions located near Abridge include several areas of historic or architectural significance designated as conservation areas. The lawyer handling your purchase offer more information

and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Chellaston has put forward the solicitor . Will it be cheaper to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a common path whereby buyers get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Do I need to be worried about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where one buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller and then selecting a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of gazumping. Instructing a law firm as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

When my partner and I are purchasing a home close to a 1500s 'church furlong' in Abridge, is it advisable that I get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Some owners in Abridge can be required to pay for repairs to a medieval church. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Abridge must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Churches in the local area include Holy Trinity.

Q.

What does fee for the conveyancing searches come to?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches varies substantially. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Is it wise to carry out the legal conveyancing process myself.

A.

Hypothetically there are no arguments at all why a seller cant apply this approach and carry out the greater majority of the legal and technical work on your own.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a significant number of actions e.g. chasing deeds and DS1 documents and notifying all parties of exchange which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Despite that legal firms are made responsible to carry relevant insurance in order to protect you from any professional failures.
