Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need discount conveyancing in Chalfont St Peter.

Q.

Please state how to circumvent paying out for stamp duty on our purchase?

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Pitstone?

A.

A solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is located.

How long does it take the conveyancer to complete the legal formalities on a detached recently developed building?
