Q.

I am trying to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Sacriston. What are the risks?

A.

Several conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees can pad the final bill. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Will you need a chancel liability search if my family are purchasing a Sacriston apartment on the same street as priory grounds?

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Sacriston Church council. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

How many weeks may conveyancing generally require, on average? We need to move quickly.

Q.

I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any hidden costs?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any additional costs for your conveyancing legal work. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial use land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Steps are taken on a local and national level to resolve topsoil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £262,000 house, what do we need to do?

A.
