I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Hartfield. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs should be fair and clearly defined.


I am buying in Hartfield. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?


Parts of Hartfield considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like country house estates, may be designated as areas of conservation. The local authority will advise further about local areas of conservation, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


Our estate agent in Hungerford has named a law firm whom they usually use. Do we need to instruct this firm?

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace way to find a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


We are buying in Hartfield with The Woolwich, what do I need to consider?


In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for property buyers. We can act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.


In regards to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, we are worried that flood searches might not be detailed enough?


Conveyancing searches carried out by the property lawyer in Hartfield will also include a far more specialist flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are still worried why not try to approach a neighbour or local resident.

What type of checks in respect to the risk of possible flooding in the East Sussex region will the solicitor in Hartfield be able to conduct for a Regency house I am purchasing?
