I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Various firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully A conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements. Charges ought to be reasonable and clear and only come into force where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

What is the council tax on a converted Band E house in Lancashire?

Q.

I am buying a restored chapel in the parish of Liverpool St David. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. Although some church councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Why could conveyancing for a sale be so delayed? We had a rather slow firm the last time we moved.

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase property can potentially be delayed even in the best of circumstances. Some causes are unhappily out of a lawyer's hands. Homeward Legal know how much extra stress these can cause and endeavour to minimise their effect by proactively handling all enquiries. Delays may include waiting for a mortgage offer.

Q.

Do I need to choose the law firm referred by the local agent?

A.
