Both high-street and online firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any charges which are listed in the terms should be fair. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

We plan to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Llanmarewic. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A conveyancer may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a building where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

What will the Builth Wells conveyancing solicitor do when the maisonette I am planning to buy is located in a local authority conservation area and has unsightly windows fitted?

Your property lawyer should ascertain if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the necessary consents.
