On the purchase of a £504,000 residence, what will be the fees? We are trying to find an affordable Rottingdean conveyancing quote.


Lack of clarity over this topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many property lawyers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional charges should be fair. They be applicable solely where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Which lenders in Rottingdean do you work with?


The Homeward Legal partnership work in conjunction with most lenders who are Council of Mortgage Lenders-approved. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Rottingdean, including Pace Kathy Associates, Flat 24 Berriedale House/251-255 Kingsway, Hove, BN3 4HD, Conti Overseas, Sheridan House/Western Rd, Hove, BN3 1DD, and Mortgage World, Westerman Complex/School Rd, Hove, BN3 5HX.


Is it imprudent to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis on our own.

Legally speaking there are no arguments why a home mover shouldn't handle the your own conveyancing unaided.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a huge array of exercises e.g. approving enquiries on searches or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors many of which are more safely handled with appropriate training.


We are intending to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Up Waltham. Is a chancel search required?


A Rottingdean conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some church councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


We have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any hidden charges?


Unfortunately, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any extra, hidden costs. You should be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The final bill you receive may be much more.


Would getting a survey be a good idea if we are purchasing property?


It is strongly recommended that most purchasers book a surveyor. It is a fact that there are many defects that can negatively affect a property, such as insect infestation and chimney defects. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


What do 'conveyancing searches' appertain to?


Conveyancing searches are queries ordered by your conveyancing solicitor via one of several specific organisations, and consider issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.


Do I need to be concerned about gazumping?


This occurs when the first purchaser's offer is accepted but then rejected by the seller and then selecting a higher offer. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
