Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £381,000 house?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in small print. Additional fees found in the terms should be fair. They only be applied if your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What average time should it take the lawyer to exchange contracts the conveyancing process for a semi detached new build property we are thinking of buying?

A.

It can take anywhere from a month to 3 months, which can be affected by a number of issues such as the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain. Homeward Legal's property solicitors are very focused on communication exchanging in as short a time as possible.

Q.

Does the report on title compiled by the property solicitor in Battle report back on the cost of council tax for a Band H cottage prior to exchange?

A.

The lawyer will speak to the Hastings local council to find out the currently applicable council tax charges which should then be detailed in the title report. Correct charges for Battle are listed on the Hastings local authority website. As at, 06 July 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,076.00

Q.

What sort of local environmental searches in relation to the risk and history of flooding in the East Sussex region will the Battle conveyancer actually apply for?

A.

A key part of the conveyancing protocol carried out when buying a property involves the conveyancing lawyer applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that set out certain details with respect to Battle area flood risk. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist flood history/risk search, such as the Homecheck search, may possibly be recommended by your Battle property lawyer if the results of the initial searches suggest a flood risk.

Q.

Is a building survey required when we are purchasing any property?

A.

It is advised that the majority of buyers book a house survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which can affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, such as corrosion of pipework or rotten roof timbers.
