Many property buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any extra charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.Q.

We do not advise purchasers expose their finances to any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..Q.
We specialise in auctions and commonly handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. It is prudent bidders to decide on a good solicitor asap to allow time for a review of the auction legal papers in advance of the day of bidding. Thereafter, following the property auction your instructed lawyer is fully prepared for finishing the legal side of things within a month as required .Q.
There are numerous conservation areas in or near Chesham. Living in a conservation area can mean security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but the restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming.
