A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Any additional charges found in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

Our lender will be Prudential Banking - is there anything I need to know?

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for many lenders.

Q.

If we are intending to purchase in the parish of Cuxham, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Benson parish you are purchasing in, a lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Benson, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Cuxham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
