Q.

A.

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.

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.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed windows to the house in Bexhill which may infringe on local conservation area criteria

Your property solicitor will always check whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the requisite permission from the local planning authority.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Bexhill conveyancing faster?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced property lawyer is crucial to buying faster. There are several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
  • quickly answering your property lawyer's questions
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

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.

We are selling in Bexhill, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. May we be expected to pay any extra charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden fees. Your quote for conveyancing in Bexhill is an honest and accurate fee the legal expenses for your sale or purchase.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Bexhill?

A.

Bexhill is located in Rother District Council, Town Hall, Bexhill- on- Sea, East Sussex, TN39 3JX, phone: 01424 787 878

Q.

Do we need to be concerned about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Buyers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.
