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.

If land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be remedied?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land is possible is some cases, but costly. Contact J B S Topsoil, Eastergate La, Eastergate, Chichester, PO20 3SJ for further information.

Q.

If you are buying a maisonette near priory land in Chichester, is it advisable that we get a chancel search?

A.

Owners of property neighbouring a medieval church must fund repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Chichester property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Churches in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, St George, Whyke, St Pancras and St Paul.

Q.

Chichester solicitors order a variety of property if instructed to act for a purchaser - which specific ones?

A.

If you are applying for a mortgage, your lender requires you to the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly specific searches, which might include Land charges full Search.

Q.

Having read about the widespread water flooding in Worthing I am anxious that property conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Chichester property solicitor will include a far more rigorous Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

You could always speak to a close neighbour for that further peace of mind.

Q.

The property seller looks to have fitted unseemly removal of chimney stacks which may infringe on the St Stephens conservation area guidelines.

A.

The property solicitor is required to find out if your new home is affected by a conservation area and whether any alterations have the appropriate consent from the Chichester planning authority. In the event that no appropriate permissions be available your solicitor will give you professional advice on the options which may include buying an indemnity insurance or requesting retrospective approval from Chichester council.

Q.

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

A.

It is well established that finding a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is key a fast completion. You should consider:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
