Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £278,000 home? We need a low cost conveyancing estimate.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges are often hiding in the small print, left unregarded by busy buyers Any additional fees should be fair and clearly defined and only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on your quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Elvetham, near Totton?

A.

The property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Elvetham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What type of local conveyancing searches as respects the uncertain risk of a flood to properties in Hampshire will the solicitor in Totton be able to do for an investment home I am hoping to buy?

Q.

What can a Totton conveyancing solicitor advise if the building is within a Southampton planning authority conservation area that may have an un-consented artificial stone cladding fitted to it?

Q.
