Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a 344,000 house? I need an affordable Kilburn conveyancing estimate.

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote Additional costs listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and only apply to matters if the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are intending to buy a restored chapel in Grinton. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners.
