Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote in Oxshott. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms, left unregarded by busy property buyers and sellers Any additional fees which are listed in the small print should be fair. They come into force only if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Farnham. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Oxshott parish you are buying in, a conveyancer might recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Oxshott, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a building where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel search if we are buying close by parsonage grounds in Oxshott?

In Oxshott, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of church property in the locality. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Church lands in this area where chancel liability may apply include St Andrew.

Q.

At what point do we need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our purchase?

A.

With few exceptions, the sooner the better. A number of sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

Bookshops now have many resources giving details on do it yourself conveyancing for example Conveyancing Forms and Procedures . Do I really need to spend money on a lawyer in Oxshott ?

A.

Above all DIY lawyers are taking risks without the correct indemnity insurance that all legal firms must carry.
