A.

We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Do we need searches for chancel liability? We are buying by a priory in Stafford.

There are fifteen thousand parishes throughout the country. Property owners within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Church properties in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include S.Paul, Forebridge, St.Mary, The Church at Rowley Street and S.Thomas & S.Andrew, Doxey.

Is there a risk that our purchase may be gazumped?

Gazumping describes circumstances where a house seller accepts an offer and then rejects it in favour of a greater offer. This may happen weeks into a purchase.
