Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £525,000 home? We are looking for a discount conveyancing estimate in Thetford.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Additional costs should be fair and clearly defined and be applicable if your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a Thetford maisonette close to a priory built in the 1700s.

A.

There are over 15,000 parishes in the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to fund the repair of a local church. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Thetford properties is likely to exist. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in this area where a chancel search may be appropriate include Cloverfield Church & Community Hall, St Cuthbert and St Peter.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should you find a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible, as there are various tasks that can begin immediately. Early instruction of a firm could mitigate the chance of your sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

Myself and my partner are purchasing in Thetford. Can I check that the property is in a designated conservation area?

Q.

Should I get a Homebuyer Report for our Thetford house purchase?

A.

It is suggested that all purchasers in Thetford instruct a house surveyor to undertake a survey if buying in Thetford. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process. These can include settlement and subsidence.
