Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £791k residence?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Your Selhurst conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

Will the conveyancing solicitor in Selhurst carry out any searches on the London thirties detached home I am intending to purchase?

Q.

If we are purchasing near Selhurst, in the parish of Harmondsworth, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Selhurst, chancel repair has the potential

Q.

Do we need to select the conveyancing solicitor referred by my local agent?

Many agents in Darnall have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
