Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in Fenham?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement that unknowing sellers and buyers have not reviewed Extra costs ought to be fair.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel liability search? We are buying in Fenham.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Fenham properties is likely to exist. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Churches in Fenham which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Cross and St James & St Basil.

Q.

Should I choose a conveyancing referred by my estate agent in Empingham?

A.

If you instruct a solicitor through this route, you your agent may be able to use their influence to exert pressure on a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

I am intending to buy in Fenham. Can I check if the house is in a conservation area?

We are intending to purchase a chapel in the parish of Fenham. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Fenham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Conveyancing and environmental searches are calculated from archived data and when you consider current events e g the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, are they the best way to establish enough about the Fenham area flood risk?
