Q.

I am looking for a cheap Bognor Regis solicitor to own property. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges can increase the solicitor's invoice. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements. Extra costs found in terms of engagement needs to be fair and reasonable and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process in Bognor Regis to have so many delays?

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home will occasionally be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal do our best to reduce the effect of these delays by using fast search providers.

Q.

There are a lot of books about the conveyancing process when buying a house. Would it be sensible to take care of the conveyancing myself ourselves?

Legally speaking there are no reasons at all why a home mover cannot complete the conveyancing yourself. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large array of skilled tasks e.g. chasing mortgage offer and the Land Registry formalities many of which need a skilled professional. Nonetheless firms and their solicitors are under a duty to be covered by the correct cover to protect you from any errors made by the lawyer.

Q.

How can we determine stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty will rely on the purchase price. For a home sold for £701000, the SDLT rate is £28040.

Q.

Is there anything we can do to avoid paying out for stamp duty on our Bognor Regis property?

A.

We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

Q.

What can a Bognor Regis conveyancing lawyer do if the flat I am intending to buy is within a registered conservation area and has unlawful roof aerials fitted?

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor to determine if the property is located within a conservation area and whether any alterations have required consent from the Arun authority.

In the event that no authority consents be in evidence your Bognor Regis conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative which may include getting covered by an indemnity policy or getting retrospective permission from the planning authority.

Q.

When buying a 1930s building in a designated conservation areas, where can I locate data in regards to the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage have created a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in Bognor Regis and across England. Local Bognor Regis conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Arun) who police conservation area concerns from the upkeep of public spaces to ugly highway signs.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

It is not always clear whether a charge is a disbursement or a fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.
