How do we find a cheap solicitor quote for selling a house?


Many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. Additional fees included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote for conveyancing in Peacehaven should list any disbursements to be paid.


Is Homeward Legal geared up for 28 day completions on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Peacehaven?


The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and do frequently handle the legal work for bidders at auction. It is important auction buyers to appoint a lawyer as fast as possible to allow time for a thorough investigation of the property's legal title well before the actual auction.

Post date of the auction a prepared lawyer is prepared for finish the purchase legal work within a month, a normal requirement of terms of sale.


What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Peacehaven. Will they be checked for comprehensively?


Land in Peacehaven may have been contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, like proximity to waste sites or environmental radon sources. An environmental search will give more information.


Is a house survey a good idea if we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?


It is recommended that buyers book an inspection when you intend to buy in Peacehaven. There are a wide range of problems which will impact a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, for example poor drainage.


Which Peacehaven mortgage lenders do you work with?


Homeward Legal can work in conjunction with most lenders who are Council of Mortgage Lenders-approved. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Peacehaven, including Duncan P Mortgage Co Ltd, 39 Tyedean Rd, Telscombe Cliffs, Peacehaven, BN10 7AT.


What length of time does conveyancing take?


On average, the amount of time taken to sell or purchase a house does vary, dependent on a handful of legal considerations, for example, whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal deliver results within six weeks, if possible.


Do we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Sompting, near Peacehaven?


The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some church councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Doing your own conveyancing without the assistance of a solicitor in Peacehaven is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house. Would it be practicable ?


Legally speaking there is no argument why a home seller cannot take care of he conveyancing yourself.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a significant number of tasks e.g. raising additional enquiries or notifying all parties of exchange which need a qualified solicitor.

Additionaly firms and their solicitors are required by the Law Society to be in possession of acceptable insurance to shield you in the event of losses you encounter.
