Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in West Barnes to purchase a home?

A.

Both high-street and online firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs may be added into the terms. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does the solicitor in West Barnes do any searches on the London Regency semi-detached home I am intending to buy?

Q.

If we plan to buy near West Barnes, in the parish of Westminster St Margaret, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
