Q.

A.

Many firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs can pad the final invoice. Costs ought to be reasonable and clear. A conveyancing quote should also state the disbursements to be paid.

I am buying a converted investment property in a designated conservation area in Porthcawl, how does one find details on the standard of upkeep?

The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.

Q.

My local agent has named the firm of solicitors that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to use them?
