Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £399,000 house?

A.

Many property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs can pad the solicitor's invoice. Charges included in terms and conditions should be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Homeward Legal have worked with the majority of lenders.

Q.

If we plan to purchase near Peak District, in the parish of Mackworth, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Peak District parish in which you are buying, the solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Peak District, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.
