We need affordable conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges may be added into small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

We've got a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any additional fees?

How will my Rawdon lawyer report back on the risk and history of floods in Rawdon?

At the time of writing indications at the Environment Agency do not show any active flood warnings in the Rawdon area.

Q.

Will the home's fixtures and fittings include things such as light fixtures?

Q.

I am buying a rectory in Clayton with Frickley. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Rawdon or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Rawdon, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
