Q.

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

A.

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.

Will we need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing in Leyton.

A.

In Leyton, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise upkeep of specific local church buildings. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Leyton must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church lands in the area include All Saints, Christ Church, Emmanuel and Parish Church St Mary w St Edward & St Luke.
