How do we find a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a home?


Many property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied homeowners


We are buying in Higham Wood, is it that important that searches are performed?


These searches are a prescribed bundle of questions undertaken on behalf of the purchaser. Conveyancing searches refer to the legal condition of the property's title.


My partner and I are buying in Higham Wood. Are there any designated conservation areas in the area?


Conservation areas categorise areas of architectural merit. You may wish to contact the council for further information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail.


What is the right point to I reserve the home removal firm?

Our recommendation is for home movers to wait before booking the removals until you and the other side has set the final move date that normally occurs once signing of contracts. Local removals firms include Van Man UK, 33 Estridge Way, Tonbridge, TN10 4JT Tel: 0800 860 0318.


Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?


A good quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.


I am concerned about the council tax rates on a terraced property in Higham Wood, what are they?


As a rule the conveyancing report on title should contain the appropriate Pembrokeshire council tax band. Correct rates for homes in Higham Wood are set out on the Pembrokeshire council site. At the time of authoring, 05 March 2013, the different rates are:

We are intending to purchase a church rectory in Northfleet. Are we advised to get a chancel search?


A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is located. In Higham Wood's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so.


We are on a deadline and will need to organise a fast purchase, how can we speed things up?


Essential to fast Higham Wood conveyancing is to employing a proactive solicitor. When selecting a solicitor, : Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
