We need discount conveyancing. What should be watch out for?


Many solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers The quote should, in addition, define any disbursements to be paid. Any extra charges included in the small print should be clearly defined. They only be applied if the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Will you need to get a chancel liability search if we are buying a Melbourne property near a 13th Century rectory?


In Melbourne, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund maintenance of nearby church land. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church properties in the local area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Michael.

My agent has put forward a solicitor . Is it advisable to use this firm?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will suggest a conveyancer. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
