How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Hurst Green?


Numerous firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in small print that buyers and sellers often do not check. Any fees found in the solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


If we are buying in Hurst Green close by a church constructed in the 15th Century, should I get a chancel search?


Owners of property in a neighbourhood near a church in the area must pay for repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Hurst Green churches include Holy Trinity, St John the Evangelist and St John the Evangelist.


The property in Hurst Green being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Is zinc soil contamination likely?


Though the dangers are usually minor, contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Metal contamination of soil in Hurst Green is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), will also be included in an environmental search.


Should I be worried about gazumping?


This arises when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a greater offer. It may happen weeks into a purchase. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


Is a retention fee a disbursement or a fee?


Unscrupulous firms hide additional costs as disbursements. It may not be obvious if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.


Where do I find out if the conservation area is at risk?
