We need to find a cheap solicitor quote to own a property. because we are on a limited budget.


Various law firms promote cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges should be reasonable and be applied only where your lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


I am taking out a mortgage in Saltdean with Derbyshire Building Society - is there anything I need to know?


Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for buyers. We can act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.


How could the sale conveyancing process require months?


The conveyancing process in Saltdean could take more time than budgeted. We understand that these can cause considerable stress and aim to lessen their impact wherever feasible. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.


We are on a very small budget , Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the assistance of a solicitor in Saltdean save any money?


Legally speaking there is no reason at all why a home seller shouldn't look after the your own conveyancing without assistance. However, a solicitor in Saltdean juggles a large number of actions such as raising additional enquiries and ensuring the seller is the rightful owner most of which require a qualified solicitor.


If we plan to purchase in the parish of Poynings, are we advised to get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Saltdean parish you are purchasing in, the conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be unaffected.


Do we need to get a chancel search when my partner and I are buying in Saltdean?


Where land in Saltdean was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise upkeep of specific local church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Saltdean property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Church of England properties in this area include St Nicholas.


How early should you instruct a conveyancer to handle our sale?


If you use a conveyancing solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Saltdean sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the transaction stalling.


Will a report on title compiled by the Saltdean property lawyer advise on the applicable rates of council tax for a house before exchanging contracts?


The property lawyer will speak to the Lewes local council to ascertain the current council tax band and rates, which will be detailed in the conveyancing report on title. The latest tax rates for homes in Saltdean are listed at the Lewes council website. At the time of authoring on 30 September 2012 rates are:
