Lack of clarity over this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Extra costs needs to be fair.Q.
Instructing a proactive conveyancer is the key to fast conveyancing. There are, in addition, numerous things you as the buyer could do to get moving sooner, such as, calling or emailing your conveyancer, and chase them if you suspect any delays, completing all forms as soon as possible and confirming your mortgage offer.Q.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the home being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Aldham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
