Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor for selling a house?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions that sellers often do not check. Your Welling conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are selling.

Q.

A.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of St George the Martyr, near Welling?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

A.

You will be given detail on your new property's band in the title report.

Q.

In about five weeks we are likely to be moving out of our terraced home just outside Welling into a bigger property in Bexleyheath what is the best point to instruct a removal company?

  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage
  • requesting status updates from the lawyer regularly
  • promptly answering your lawyer's questions
