How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Several solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Charges found in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Are charges for obtaining copies of building regulation approval disbursements or fees?


Some firms pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it ought to be included. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.


Do you address looking into how to defer paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally due on residential property over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme must be treated with caution, as such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty amount may be due. There have been certain legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief.


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


It is well established that finding a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is key a fast completion. You should consider:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • How soon will they order searches?

We plan to buy a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Lewes All Saints. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


Whichever Chichester parish you are buying in, a solicitor could recommend a chancel search. In Chichester's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a house where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Are any of the Chichester conservation areas are at risk?


A recent register of the condition of conservation areas is filed by English Heritage (formerly Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England) and the following areas and information are currently available at their website - Graylingwell with Chichester determined to be very bad with high vulnerability and condition improving significantly.

How early do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?


With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then begin immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Chichester sale or purchase for a purchase can mean that you will the details of your Chichester solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).
