Q.

How do we find the cheapest Wantage conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs may inflate the final invoice. Any additional costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What will a Wantage property solicitor recommend if the home we hope to purchase is within a Vale of White Horse local authority conservation area which seems to have unsympathetic windows fitted to it?

A.

The local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your Wantage property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing should find out if the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of local authority approval for modifications will be requested.

Q.
