Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate in Cheshunt?

A.

This topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement. Charges ought to be fair and only come into force where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Bovingdon, near Cheshunt?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In older areas of Cheshunt, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Bovingdon, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Our estate agent in Alton has named the solicitor . Do we need to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Agent referrals are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
