How do we find a discount conveyancing estimate?


Various conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms that buyers often do not check. Costs found in the terms should be fair. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


How much time can the legal work to buy property often take? We need to move quickly.


For the majority of home movers, the number of weeks needed to sell or purchase property does vary, with reference to a number of factors, for example, if either party has a mortgage. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas our solicitors work for a deadline of six weeks.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like a washing machine?


Petersfield property buyers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over which fixtures and fittings are included. This can be disregarded, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.


What can my conveyancing searches in Petersfield be?


The cost of searches varies considerably, depending on the searches required by your lender. These searches are paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.


Alliance and Leicester is our mortgage lender - what do we need to know?


Prior to recent changes, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Buyers should be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for property purchasers if a second solicitor is required by their lender. We will act on behalf of all large lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.


We are purchasing a £175000. How is stamp duty calculated?


The Stamp Duty you will owe will depend on the valuation. On a £175000 property, stamp duty will be £1750.*

*This information correct as of March 2013


What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Petersfield, and will they be comprehensively investigated?


Numerous of contaminants caused by environmental concerns can reduce the value of Petersfield property, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific residence is impacted by local contaminants like sand or gravel pits.


Should you get a chancel search? I am buying next to church grounds in Petersfield.


There are over 15,000 parishes across England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to cover the cost of the repair of a local church. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Petersfield Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church of England properties in this area where chancel liability may apply include St Peter.
