Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Several solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Charges found in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated in Chichester, what amount should we budget for a £832000 residential property?

A.

SDLT is based on the property's price. Stamp duty will be £33280 on a £832000 property.

Q.

In 1 month we are looking to be finally moving out of our semi detached residence in Chichester to a property in Burgess Hill what is the best point to instruct a home removal company?

A.

We would tend to advise that sellers hold off organising removals until such time as exchange of contracts because generally a moving date will not have been agreed. The greater majority of home removals firms might charge a rearrangement fine . Try ASAP Removals & Storage Ltd, Arundel Road, Tangmere, Chichester, PO18 0JZ Phone: 01903 641242 or Lion Removals, 57 Deeside Avenue, Chichester, PO19 3QG Tel: 01243 778895.

Q.

In what ways can a property solicitor in Chichester advise me on the risk and history of possible flooding at Chichester on a Regency home I am wanting to purchase?

A.

A conveyancer will apply for property conveyancing searches that incorporate Chichester area flood risk information. Furthermore the Chichester conveyancing solicitor will often suggest a significantly more involved flood search.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Chichester, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Property in Chichester can be contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues. Issues such as pollution incidents and military land will be considered as part of the environmental searches. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Boxgrove Quarry, Tinwood Lane, West Sussex, PO18 0NE.

Q.

The internet is full of a number of helpful documents on the subject of DIY conveyancing. Do I really need to spend money on a property solicitor in Chichester ?

A.

Technically speaking there are no reasons why a buyer cant do the legal process on your own. However, a conveyancing solicitor carries out a long list of actions including applying for office copies of lease and other land reg docs or checking the lease which are more safely handled with appropriate training. Despite that firms and their solicitors will get applicable insurance cover to insulate you in the event of errors.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Chichester?

A.

Areas considered to be of architectural merit, like fishing villages, may be designated as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Chichester include Graylingwell. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a house seller approves a purchaser's offer and then refuses it, selecting instead another purchaser's offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.
