Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £455,000 property? We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in small print. Any disbursements should also be included on your conveyancing quote

Do I need to get a chancel search when I am buying a house on the same road as a church furlong in Oakwood?


Owners of property near to nearby church land must pay for repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Oakwood Church of England properties include St Thomas.


We need to complete this property purchase as soon as possible, how can we arrange a fast exchange and completion in Oakwood?


Firstly, instructing a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast completion. There are, in addition, a range of things you, as the purchaser, can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with the conveyancing solicitor
  • responding to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can


There are a lot of books about doing ones own conveyancing when buying and selling a maisonette. Might it be foolhardy to carry out the legal side ourselves?


There is no argument at all why a home seller should not handle the your own conveyancing on your own. In reality however, a property solicitor carries out a large array of activities including approving contract and apportioning ground rents which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional. In addition solicitors are required by their regulator to have professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of any omissions.
