Q.

We need a cheap solicitor to buy a property. Can you assist?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges needs to be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in Charleton with Buckland Tout Saints. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Will doing the conveyancing myself save any cash?

A.
