Q.

We are looking for a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are frequently hidden in small print that buyers often do not check. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on any quote for conveyancing in CamberwellOur quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

It is unfortunate that buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. Our solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden fees. Our quotes offer an accurate price.

Part of the legal process includes procurement of searches of Southwark council to see conservation area status and the requisite consent for alterations. .

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen Bradford and Bingley - is there anything we need to be aware of?

I am intending to buy a house in the parish of Savoy precinct. Will a chancel search be needed?
