There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.


Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry.


Will we need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a maisonette next to rectory land in Felpham.


Property owners in Felpham may be subject to chancel repair liability. Some names or words such as 'abbeylands' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Felpham Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mary the Virgin.


We are buying on a former industrial site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?


There are regulations in place to restrict top-soil contamination. Metal contamination of top-soil in Felpham is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like radioactive waste and groundwater contamination, will also be included in an environmental search.


What average time should it take my assigned solicitor to conclude all of the conveyancing formalities on a detached building we are intending to purchase?


It can take anywhere between 3 weeks and 3 months depending on any number of factors, for example the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.


Should we opt for a conveyancing often used by the agent?


If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you the agent can use their influence persuade a solicitor to complete sooner. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Do searches matter?


Searches are a prescribed collection of queries raised by the purchaser's conveyancer through several agencies, such as a local authority search. Searches are not carried out by a property surveyor and do not include information relating to a property's structure.


Where do we determine more info on the conservation areas in Felpham?


Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local Felpham conservation areas, like building materials, satellite dishes or modern telephone boxes are governed by the local Arun planning authority.


Why does sale conveyancing legal work require months? We had several delays with our previous solicitor.


The conveyancing process can be delayed for many reasons. The reasons can sometimes be out of the conveyancing solicitor's hands. We seek to reduce the consequences of these delays whenever possible by proactively handling all enquiries.
