How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for buying a property?


Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Where can I establish if the Robertsbridge conservation area is neglected?


Conservation areas in Robertsbridge are designated by Rother who are responsible for everything from including things like poorly maintained public spaces, dormer windows and property boundaries. English Heritage maintain records in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the risk of a worsening of the condition of the area.


If my family are buying in Robertsbridge near a 14th Century 'church furlong', should you get a chancel search?


Property owners in a neighbourhood near an old church building are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Robertsbridge must register their interest over property by October 2013,

simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.


What is gazumping?


Gazumping describes circumstances where a property owner accepts a lower offer, then refuses it, choosing instead a higher offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. You should instruct a solicitor early to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.
