Q.

What actual property will the lawyer in Crowborough carry out for a Crowborough home?

Q.

I am buying in Crowborough, and have had a quote from you. Will there be any extra costs?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden costs. On occasion, a separate piece of work is also advised, a lease extension, for example, but any fees for additional work will not be charged without your awareness.

Q.

In about five weeks we are going to be moving from our detached residence near Crowborough into our new property in Brighton . At what stage to choose a house removal firm?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to recommend that buyers and sellers hold off booking a removals company until after exchange of contracts as the firm moving date wont have been formally agreed. The majority of home removals companies charge a change of date amount . There are many local and national companies including Beacon Removals, 9 Crowborough Mews/Mill La, Crowborough, TN6 1BY Phone: 01892 263646 or Pritchards Removals, 22 Heather Walk, Crowborough, TN6 2HA Tel: 07894 514081.

Q.

We are buying in Crowborough on a new development brownfield site. Is manganese (Mn) soil contamination likely?

A.

With the history of industry in parts of Crowborough, topsoil contamination is difficult to avoid. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

If we are intending to purchase near Crowborough, in the parish of South Malling, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax assessed and what should we budget for a £877k property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax will rely on the purchase price. For a house or flat in Crowborough valued at £877k, the SDLT rate is £35080.*
