I need low cost conveyancing. How do we get a quote?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed windows to the house in Bexhill which may infringe on local conservation area criteria


Your property solicitor will always check whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the requisite permission from the local planning authority.


We are buying a 1930s investment property in one of the conservation area in Bexhill. Where does one find details about the state of repair?


Local conservation areas are specified by the local Rother planning authority, who administer things like the historic layout of roads to the obstruction of neon signs. English Heritage, a government body, have assembled records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.


Which specific search enquiries does a Bexhill conveyancer do when carrying out the conveyancing for a Bexhill house?


The customary conveyancing protocol is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum and occasionally less common searches, which may include a Anti Money Laundering Search.


Is contaminated land an issue in Bexhill?


Property in Bexhill could be contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors. Contaminants such as a proximate telecommunications base station or local waste transfer sites will be reported on in environmental search results.


Having heard about the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012, I am worried that flood searches aren't detailed enough?


Property environmental searches conducted by your Bexhill property solicitor should include the far more informative flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are nervous you can speak to a neighbour.


Are charges for obtaining duplicate freehold company share certificates disbursements or fees?


Some conveyancers attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may not be obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.


Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Bexhill conveyancing faster?


Contacting a proactive and experienced property lawyer is crucial to buying faster. There are several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
  • quickly answering your property lawyer's questions
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can
