Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in West Ewell?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement ought to be reasonable and clear. They only apply to matters if the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra 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.

How can conveyancing take such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing in West Ewell will sometimes be subject to numerous interruptions or delays even in ideal circumstances. In some cases, the reasons are beyond the conveyancing solicitor's power. Homeward Legal work hard to lessen their consequences if it can be achieved. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

We plan to buy a converted chapel in Rotherhithe. Is a chancel search necessary?

Your conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In West Ewell's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
