Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor in Charmouth to sell a home?

A.

Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees may increase your solicitor's invoice.

Our chosen property solicitors are extremely focused on pushing transactions through you moving home as promptly as we possibly can.

What is gazumping?

Gazumping describes circumstances where an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the owner, opting instead for another buyer's offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. You should instruct a solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

We plan to purchase a chapel in the parish of Swanage. Should we get a chancel search?
