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.

We are buying a new build property, do we need searches?

A.

These searches are a standard pack of queries raised by the conveyancing solicitor through particular authorities, for example a mining search. These searches do give much needed information and context, but deal with facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

Which elements help with organising a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is essential to a faster move. There are several things you can do, including, pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible, quickly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and ordering a property survey early in the transaction.

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.

Q.

In what ways does the solicitor in Bognor Regis report back on the risk of possible flooding in Bognor Regis?

A.

A necessary step in the legal procedure involves the conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that go in specific information about the risk of flooding in Bognor Regis.

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 do I need to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Promptly instructing a firm for your Bognor Regis transaction for a sale enables documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Bognor Regis solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Will I need to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a residence in Bognor Regis.

A.
