Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Cambourne for a £630,000 house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the small print. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Cambourne?

A.

Generally, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can start immediately. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your Cambourne transaction for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Babraham, near Cambourne?

A.

Regardless of the Cambourne parish you are purchasing in, the conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Cambourne, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Could our conveyancing fees have any extra costs?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Our solicitors never hide any hidden charges.
