Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'.

The cost of searches varies appreciably. Additional searches your solicitor may recommend include a lead mining search.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search when we are buying near rectory land in Marylebone?

A.

Property owners near to a medieval church are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in the local area include St Cyprian Clarence Gate and St Paul Rossmore Road.
