A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Should I get a chancel liability search? I am buying a Eccleston maisonette on the same street as parsonage grounds.

The judgement in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Eccleston ecclesiastical properties include Christ Church, St Luke, St Mary the Virgin and St Mary the Virgin.
