Q.

I am looking for a discount conveyancing quote in Edge Hill. What do I need to check for?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers and sellers Your Edge Hill conveyancing quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements). Any extra costs listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined. They be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can start immediately. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your Edge Hill transaction can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.

Q.

Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?

A.

Comparing quotes can be difficult, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

If I plan to purchase in the parish of Claughton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Edge Hill, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Should I use a conveyancing solicitor referred by the estate agent in Shenley?

A.

Your agent will have influence over one or more conveyancing firms they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am concerned that flood risk searches may not be sufficient?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor in Edge Hill will consider also get environmental searches if the standard searches determine a any kind of risk of flooding in Edge Hill.

Property purchasers sometimes get in touch with a next door neighbour for that further confidence.

Q.

Will the property solicitor in Edge Hill inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band G property prior to completion?

A.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search? I am buying a home close by land owned by the church in Edge Hill.

A.
