How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I need to find low cost conveyancing.


Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Your conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements. Additional fees should be clearly defined.


How can we stop getting gazumped?


The custom of deciding to reject a previously accepted offer when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is known as gazumping. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. You should instruct an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of gazumping.


As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are concerned that flood risk searches won't be thorough enough?

The property lawyer in Wadhurst will suggest that you carry out in depth conveyancing searches (environmental) if the initial search identifies any kind of Wadhurst flood risk area data

You could contact a future neighbour for some further assurance.


Which environmental factors will affect land in Wadhurst, and should they be a concern?

We plan to buy a converted chapel in the parish of Willingdon. Will a chancel search be appropriate?


Your solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Apparently, selenium soil contamination may be an issue in Wadhurst. Can you advise?


Even where some contamination has occurred in Wadhurst, risk levels are usually low. Other sources of contaminated land include trichloroethylene and groundwater contamination.
