How do we find a cheap solicitor in Whitstable to own property?


Numerous firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. The quote should also state any disbursements. Additional fees ought to be reasonable and clear and come into force only if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Will we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Cranbrook, near Whitstable?


Whichever Whitstable parish you are buying in, a conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Whitstable's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
