Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a 139,000 house? We are looking for fixed rate Langley conveyancing.

A.

This point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in the small print. Your quote should list applicable disbursements.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

A.

Owners of property neighbouring a medieval church may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'glebe', may indicate chancel liability. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.

Would acquiring a home buyers survey be required when we are buying a property in Langley?

A.
