Q.

Are additional fees applied? I am trying to find discount conveyancing in Chertsey.

A.

Numerous conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are often hiding in the terms. Extra fees which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Chiddingfold, near Chertsey?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on new owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

There is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings, leading to potential for frustration after a sale completes. Completion

or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are focused on speed and communication completing the legal process as promptly as possible.
