How do I find affordable conveyancing?

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing, however additional charges can inflate the final invoice.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Beetham?

The conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the vast majority of lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.
