This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'.

A.

Regardless of the Irthlingborough parish you are purchasing in, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

How much would our conveyancing searches be?

A.

Searches range in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. The most frequently used searches include a drainage search and a local authority search.
