Seaton key data:

Seaton's nearest train station is Axminster at 6 miles and Seaton's closest airport is Exeter International Airport (15 miles).

Seaton is a nearby hospital to Seaton.


What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £373,000 property?


Many online and high street law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can inflate the final bill. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid. Any charges needs to be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Monkokehampton, near Seaton?


A lawyer might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is located. In older areas of Seaton, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


What can a Seaton conveyancing solicitor do when the property we are buying is located in a local authority conservation area and has out of place dormer windows added?


East Devon council search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your Seaton property lawyer during the conveyancing process will see if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for additions to the property will be supplied.


How can we avoid gazumping?


This occurs when a seller approves an offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a greater offer. This may happen weeks into a purchase. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.


I am buying a sixties maisonette in a designated conservation area in Seaton. How do we find data on the state of upkeep of the Seaton conservation area?


English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to deterioration or improvement.

Local conservation areas are set up by East Devon who preserve things like the upkeep of public spaces to back illuminated signs.


I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any extra costs?


We never charge any additional charges regardless of circumstances.


We are buying on a Seaton former industrial site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


There are extensive regulations in place to curtail soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including radioactive waste.


What will the council tax cost on a Victorian Band A flat in Seaton?
