Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £444,000 property?

The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Will you need searches for chancel liability? We are buying close by a 1700s glebe in Kingston.

A.

In Kingston, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise upkeep of a medieval church. Parochial Church Councils in Kingston must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Kingston churches include All Saints & St Andrew, St Giles, St James and St James the Less.

Q.

Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some conveyancers frequently hide additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear if a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

Do you work with lenders with Kingston branches?

We are able to work in conjunction with most lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

A wide range of contaminants may potentially impair land, such as civil aviation activity in the area. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.
