Q.

I am looking for discount conveyancing in Buxton. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of Sawley. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your Buxton conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search.

In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
