Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We need a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements. Any extra costs ought to be reasonable. They be applicable if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We are intending to buy a property in Stoke Goldington with Gayhurst. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to impose chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
