Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Chipping Sodbury?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Any extra charges found in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We have found collections of handbooks giving details on doing the legal work yourself e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do we need to use a Chipping Sodbury conveyancer ?

A.

In theory there is no reason why a home seller cant conduct your own conveyancing on your own.

In reality however, a lawyer is familiar with a huge array of activities such as chasing deeds and DS1 documents and checking replies to additional enquiries some of which require experience.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Doynton?

A.

Your property solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some parish councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability. For property in the parish of Doynton, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
