If I am purchasing in the parish of Stoke next Guildford, should we order a chancel search?

In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is a deed of assignment a fee or a disbursement?

A.

It may not be clear whether an item on your quote is a disbursement or a fee. This charge, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote for your conveyancing. Any associated disbursement costs will, however, be passed on..
