Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms.

Q.

If I am intending to buy near Newcastle under Lyme, in the parish of Hanford, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

I have got a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any extra fees?

A.

Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. We will never charge any additional costs. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Handling the legal work without the support of a Newcastle under Lyme solicitor appears to be becoming possible when buying a house. Would it be risky ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there are no arguments why you should not carry out the legal and technical work yourself.

The truth is however that a property solicitor juggles a large number of actions ranging from chasing deeds and DS1 documents or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors most of which really need experience.

Furthermore firms and their solicitors are required to carry suitable insurance cover to protect you from any failures made by the lawyer.
