Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for selling a home?

A.

Many firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees ought to be clearly defined. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying in Charlton. Are there any designated conservation areas in the area?

A.

Q.

Do you advise that we get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same road as church grounds in Charlton.

Churches in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter, St Richard, All Saints and St Luke.

I am buying a house with Britannia, what do we need to be aware of?
