How do I find the cheapest Highcliffe conveyancing quote?


This affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes.

If we are intending to buy in the parish of Dorchester Holy Trinity with Frome Whitfield, should we get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Highcliffe parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Would it be reasonable to take care of the conveyancing on a DIY basis on our own.


There are no reasons why a home seller cant apply this approach and complete the bulk of the legal process without lawyer in Highcliffe.

Above all have a go conveyancers take huge risks in operating without applicable indemnity cover which every legal practices need to be covered by.


Do you need a chancel search? I am buying a Highcliffe property near church grounds.


Owners of property near to a local church may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Highcliffe must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Highcliffe churches which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mark.
