Q.

A.

Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion Art Gallery and Battle Abbey English Heritage are close to Bexhill.

The closest hospital is Bexhill.

Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to handle fast completions on the conveyancing for auction properties in Bexhill?

A.

Indeed we work closely with auctioneers and often get instructed by sellers at auction. It is highly recommended for buyers to appoint an auction experienced lawyer as soon as they can for a full report of the sellers documents prior to the auction day.

After the day of the auction your lawyer is totally prepared for finishing the legal side of things inside 28 days as typically required .

Q.

Having heard about the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012, I am worried that flood searches aren't detailed enough?

A.

Property environmental searches conducted by your Bexhill property solicitor should include the far more informative flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are nervous you can speak to a neighbour.

Q.

What sort of local conveyancing searches as respects the risk of a flood to properties in East Sussex will my conveyancing solicitor in Bexhill be able to apply for on a Sixties home I am purchasing?

A.

The residential property conveyancing solicitor will apply for standard formal property environmental searches, which include Bexhill historical flood risk information.

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take our assigned property lawyer to conclude all of the legal work for the lower floor of recently developed building in Bexhill?

A.

It can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can be affected by various factors such as the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancer, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain. Our chosen lawyers are exceptionally focused on speed and communication, with the intention of exchanging as soon as realistically possible.

Q.

We plan to buy a medieval barn conversion in Felpham. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Bexhill or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so.

Q.

Does my conveyancer in Bexhill inform me about the cost of council tax for a Band C house prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

Your property lawyer will consult with the Rother local authority to ascertain the latest council tax band and rates, which should then be set out in the report on title. Council tax rates for Bexhill are set out online at the Rother local authority site. As of 07 July 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,059.00
  • Band B - £1,236.00
  • Band C - £1,412.00
  • Band D - £1,589.00
  • Band E - £1,942.00
  • Band F - £2,295.00
  • Band G - £2,648.00
  • Band H - £3,178.00

Q.

How early do I need to speak to a conveyancer?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of your sale or purchase aborting.
