Q.

We need an affordable conveyancing quote. What is included?

A.

Various law firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra charges may be added into the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The conveyancing quote should, in addition, define the disbursements to be paid. Any charges found in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined and only be applied if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Goosnargh, near Maghull?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In older areas of Maghull, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a home where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms hide additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear if a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.
