Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

I am buying a home in Heighington. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is located. Through some parish councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
