Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in Leyton.


Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Your Leyton conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any extra fees should be clearly defined and only be applied if your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

As a result of the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are asking if flood risk searches might not be sufficient?

Will a property solicitor in Leyton carry out personal or official searches on my property purchase?


The conveyancer will make a recommendation regarding the best course of action, depending on factors like local authority turnaround times.

If we plan to purchase near Leyton, in the parish of St Andrew Holborn, do we need a chancel search?


Your conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is located. In older areas of Leyton, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


How soon is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor?


The short answer is, the earlier, the better. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Leyton transaction can reduce any chance of your sale or purchase aborting.
