Q.

I am looking for affordable conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra fees found in the terms should be reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on a Aylesford conveyancing quote

    Q.

    A.

    There is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings, which may lead to conflict after completion and the previous owner has taken certain items or fixtures with them. This may not considered until it is too late, making the approval of the list of fixtures and fittings essential.

    Q.

    A.

    Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Aylesford property likely to be affected. Parochial Church Councils in Aylesford must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further.
