This issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees are often hiding in the small print. These terms are often ignored by excited home owners, eager to get underway. Any fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.Q.

Whichever Sandbanks parish in which you are buying, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search.

In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.Q.
