Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could I be charged any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Our solicitors do not charge any extra, hidden costs. Know that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013.

Ecclesiastical properties in the area include All Saints and Church of the Transfiguration.

Q.

Bookshops have plenty of helpful publications about by passing the solicitor such as Buy, Sell & Move House: A Complete Guide to Navigating the Property Market by Kate Faulkner. In which case, do I need to spend money on a property lawyer in Kempston ?

That said, a property solicitor is in charge of a large array of assignments e.g. chasing retention releases or ensuring the seller is the rightful owner some of which require training. Fundamentally amateur lawyers will be working without the correct insurance which legal practices are required to carry.
