How do I get a cheap solicitor for buying a property?

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement.

Where land in Buntingford was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards upkeep of a medieval church.

A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church lands in the area where chancel liability may apply include St Peter.
