How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £398k house?


Several firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Extra fees should be reasonable and clear. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like the fridge?


Generally speaking, there is no strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Is it dangerous to circumvent paying HMRC stamp duty?


Stamp duty is generally due on home purchases sold for over £125,000. We do not recommend clients expose their finances to any form of stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.


Do we need to employ the conveyancing solicitor referred by my estate agent?


Your Brantham agent may recommend one or more conveyancing firms. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Will our conveyancer in Rustington inform me about the cost of the council tax for a Band A property prior to exchange of contracts?


Your solicitor will contact the Arun local council to ascertain the latest council tax rates, which should then be added to the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date charges for residents of Rustington are published online at the Arun local authority site. At the time of authoring on 26 July 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,015.00
  • Band B - £1,184.00
  • Band C - £1,353.00
  • Band D - £1,522.00
  • Band E - £1,860.00
  • Band F - £2,198.00
  • Band G - £2,537.00
  • Band H - £3,044.00


What are the alternatives if we buy a Rustington semi detached house in a Arun planning authority conservation area ?


The local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by a property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will check the existence of suitable authorisation for any development to the building.

In the event that no necessary permissions be available, your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives such as buying an indemnity policy or getting retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.


How can a Rustington lawyer report on the risk and history of a flood in the Rustington region on an Edwardian maisonette we intend to purchase?


A conveyancing solicitor will apply for standard formal property environmental searches that incorporate Rustington historical flood risk information.
