Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in North Somerset?

A.

Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees will be included in the terms. Extra costs listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on the quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

If we are purchasing in North Somerset, is it recommended that I get a chancel search?

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in North Somerset which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to a medieval church. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

A.

The lawyer will inform you as to the ideal course of action, depending on factors like mortgage lender requirements.
