We need a cheap solicitor to own a flat. What should we check?


Several firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in small print.


At what point is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?


In the vast majority of cases, the faster you instruct the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be performed immediately. Promptly instructing a firm can reduce any chance of the purchase or sale stalling.


Might it be insensible to carry out the legal conveyancing process ourselves.


There are no reasons why a home buyer shouldn't do the legal process without the help of conveyancing solicitor in Polegate. That said, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large number of jobs such as approving completion statements and assembling correct warranties which are better done by someone with a qualified professional. Critically DIY lawyers will not have suitable insurance which all legal firms are legally obligated to have.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 I am wondering if property conveyancing searches might not be sufficient?

A Polegate property lawyer will suggest that you get additional detailed flood searches if the first conveyancing searches spots a Polegate flood risk.

Why not also contact a close neighbour for some additional comfort or nearby East Sussex flood damage expert e.g. D T Decorators, 54 Heron Ridge, Polegate, BN26 5BJ Tel: 01323 806732.


What kind of local environmental checks about the uncertain risk of floods to properties in East Sussex will a Polegate conveyancing solicitor be able to apply for?


An important part of the legal process involves the conveyancer applying for property environmental searches that offer you detail with regard to Polegate flood risk area data.


Are there companies who remediate contaminated topsoil in Polegate?


Some degree of remediation is often feasible. For more detail, contact Winter C B & Sons Ltd, Common Lane, Selmeston, Polegate, BN26 6SX.


Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?


It may not be clear if a cost is a fee or a disbursement. This cost,e.g., is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a quote.


Will the title report compiled by the Polegate conveyancing solicitor report back on the relevant rates of council tax for a Band A property prior to exchange?


The lawyer will contact the council to discover the currently applicable council tax charges which will then be set out in the title report. The latest council tax rates for properties in Polegate are detailed online at the Wealden local authority site. At the time of writing, 29 January 2013, the different rates are:
