Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 145k house? We need to find low cost conveyancing.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on any quote for conveyancing in Carlton Additional charges included in the terms should be clearly defined. They be applied only where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

There is a lot of free information about DIY conveyancing when buying a house. Might it be a false economy to carry out the DIY conveyancing myself?

A.

Technically speaking there is no reason at all why a buyer cannot conduct your own conveyancing yourself. However, a Carlton lawyer is in charge of a large array of exercises e.g. approving contract or checking the lease many of which really need experience. Nonetheless firms and their solicitors are compelled to pay for relevant insurance to protect you from any professional omissions.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search if we are buying a property by a church in Carlton?

A.

The judgement in a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'Glebe Farm', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Carlton churches include St John the Evangelist, St John the Baptist, St John the Evangelist and St John the Baptist.

Q.

We have a freehold residence to purchase. How do we get fast conveyancing?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction. Consider the following:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Do they order searches immediately?
