How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


Both high-street and online property lawyers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy homeowners Any extra costs included in the terms should be reasonable and only apply to matters if the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


I have found a plethora of very helpful manuals all about doing the legal work yourself. Do I therefore need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Whitchurch ?


It can certainly possible for you to handle the your own conveyancing on your own.

In reality however, a solicitor in Whitchurch juggles a huge array of activities such as chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and checking replies to additional enquiries which require training. In addition solicitors practices are bound to get relevant insurance cover to safeguard you from any professional omissions made by the lawyer.


Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying next to church land in Whitchurch.


The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Whitchurch church properties where a chancel search

may be necessary include S.Alkmund, with Creslow St John the Evangelist, St Nicholas and with Creslow St John the Evangelist.
