Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Additional costs should be fair and be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Is gazumping very common in Liverpool? What exactly is it?

A.

Gazumping happens when a buyer's offer is accepted, but then rejected by the property owner in preference of another buyer's higher offer.

Q.

We plan to purchase a home in the parish of Astley. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Regardless of the Liverpool parish in which you are buying, the conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Although some church councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
