Q.

We are trying to find discount conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. The quote should list any disbursements to be paid. Any additional fees which are listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair.

Q.

Do we need a chancel liability search? I am buying a home in Bradley Stoke.

A.

Where land in Bradley Stoke was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards repairs to a medieval church. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Bradley Stoke Church of England properties include Christ the King and Holy Trinity.
