Q.

We need to find discount conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

Both high-street and online firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy sellers and buyers Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings refer to?

A.

There is no strict definition of fixtures and fittings, resulting in considerable confusion once the buyer moves in and some items which the buyer assumed would be left behind are taken by the sellers when they move out. For many transactions, this is neglected, which makes a fixtures and fittings form so useful.

Will we need searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Coleford.

Coleford ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include Holy Trinity and St John the Evangelist.
