A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the terms. Charges included in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote ought to define the disbursements to be paid.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

What will the Temple conveyancing solicitor advise if the home is within a Westminster planning authority conservation area that may have ill-suited window frames fitted?

A.

Local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your solicitor during the legal process should find out if the property is inside a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for changes to the property will be supplied.
