Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need an affordable conveyancing estimate.


Numerous firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on the quote Any additional costs listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


Our purchase will complete on 22nd July, how is stamp duty determined?


Stamp Duty Land Tax will depend on the house's value. On a £285k house or flat, stamp duty will be £8550.*

*This information accurate as of February 2013


Please recommend how to avoid paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Stamp duty is generally payable on residential property over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty amount may be due. There have been a small number of legal initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..


What does a Worthing property lawyer do when the flat we are planning to buy is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unauthorised windows added?


Your solicitor will always identify if your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the requisite permissions from the local authority.Should no suitable consents be in evidence your Worthing conveyancer will give you professional advice on the alternatives which include purchasing an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective approval from Worthing local authority.


I plan to purchase a home in the parish of Glynde. Is a chancel search specified?


Your solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a home where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.


We are buying a unique building within a Worthing conservation area. How do I find information concerning the state of repair?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have created information in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to the area falling into disrepair. Local Worthing conservation areas are created by the local authority (Worthing) who regulate things like what can be developed to new developments.


We are buying on a Worthing brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like selenium?


Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Worthing, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Metal contamination of soil in Worthing is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like bleach, will also be included in an environmental search.
