Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates in New Forest for a £446,000 property?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

What length of time will be budgeted for the legal work to transfer a house usually need in New Forest?

A.

Q.

How soon do we need to get a solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be carried out very early in the process.

Some groups recommend postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

When I am buying in New Forest, would you advise that we get a chancel search?

A.

There are thousands of Church of England and Church of Wales parishes across the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply.
