The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. This small print is often not read by sellers in a hurry.

Q.

The estate agent has offered the conveyancing. Must I instruct this firm?

A.

An agent may refer a conveyancing firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

I am intending to buy a property in the parish of Thorne. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Although some church councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners.
