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.Q.

Buyers in Temple should know that some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal can act for most UK mortgage lenders.Q.
This takes place when a property seller accepts the first buyer's offer and then refuses it, opting for another purchaser's offer. Although
being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. You should instruct your solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.Q.
Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Temple property likely to be affected. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Ecclesiastical properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Catherine.Q.
Your property lawyer could advise that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In Temple's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Haggerston St Mary, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.Q.
An experienced residential property conveyancing lawyer will conduct official environmental searches that incorporate Temple flood risk area data information. Furthermore a Temple property solicitor could advise a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) local search.Q.
