Several property lawyers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'.

Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

The local agent has referred a firm of solicitors. Will it be easier to instruct this solicitor?

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be thoroughly considered, as there

is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

A thorough Lanchester property lawyer will consider get additional flood risk searches if the first conveyancing searches establishes a any kind of risk of flooding in Lanchester

Is it necessary to get a chancel liability search when I am buying in Lanchester close to priory grounds?

Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Lanchester property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church of England properties in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include All Saints Parish Church.

Indeed we work with auctioneers throughout County Durham and regularly carry out work for buyers at auction. We tend to encourage purchasers to select a SRA regulated lawyer well in advance of the property auction date to allow sufficient time for a full review.

After the auction day your appointed property conveyancing lawyer is completely prepared for finishing the legal side of things within the limited time frame as required .
