Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I am trying to find affordable conveyancing in Hersham.

A.

If I am buying on the same street as a parsonage in Hersham, will you need to get a search for chancel liability?

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are wondering whether flood risk searches won't be exacting enough?

A.
