Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing in Arundel?

A.

The confusion over this matter affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many law firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on your quote Any charges found in terms of engagement needs to be fair. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £940,000 home, how can we speed things up?

A.

Crucial to fast conveyancing is to use a communicative lawyer. Additionally, there are several things you can also do to get moving sooner, including, arranging your mortgage offer, promptly completing and return any forms and keeping in regular contact with your lawyer.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings include?

There is not a clear definition of fixtures and fittings, which can result in conflict once the new owner takes possession. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

In relation to the widespread water flooding in Worthing, I am wondering if flood searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

Property environmental searches applied for by a conveyancer in Arundel will include the far more rigorous search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

You might be able to speak to a neighbour or local resident to get added insight.

Q.

Direct Line Mortgages is going to be our lender - what will I need to consider?

A.

A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. We, fortunately, are able to act for many lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How will a solicitor in Arundel investigate the risk of flooding to properties in Arundel?

A.

A residential property conveyancing solicitor applies for standard formal environmental searches that incorporate Arundel area flood risk information.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Arundel?

A.

Arundel is located in Arun District Council, Maltavers Road, Littlehampton, West Sussex, BN17 5LF, phone: 01903 737 500

Q.

Do you advise that we get a chancel search if you are buying in Arundel?

A.

In Arundel, some owners can be required to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'abbeylands' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Arundel ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Nicholas Church.
