"Working together is critical for less stressful completion."
When buying, selling or remortgaging a home in Ditchling, you will need to chose a lawyer to look after the conveyancing work on your behalf.
Our panel of conveyancing solicitors have years of experience of conveyancing in Ditchling and throughout East Sussex and our pragmatic approach often means we complete the transaction in the shortest possible time.
Our property lawyers perform all the conveyancing work for your home move for a fixed cost of conveyancing.
We do not charge you any solicitors fees for buying and selling a property, if for any reason your West Sussex house move does not complete.
With local experience, our CQS solicitors will guide you along every step of the conveyancing process.
No additional fees whatsoever.

Princess Royal is a relatively close hospital.Q.
Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many law firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Any additional charges ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote for conveyancing in Ditchling must also state any disbursements to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.Q.
Our team deal with auctions throughout the UK and frequently act for buyers and sellers at auction. It is very important bidders to formally appoint a suitable lawyer as early as possible to allow time for a detailed investigation of the sellers documents before the auction.
After the date of the auction your experienced lawyer is fully prepared for concluding the conveyancing within a as tight time frame as required .
The conveyancer could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is found. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a property where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.Q.
Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in Ditchling where chancel liability may apply include The Beacon Parish.Q.
Agent recommendations are a not uncommon way to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.Q.
We firmly suggest that property purchasers order a house survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that will impact a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, which include poor ventilation or rotten roof timbers.Q.
SDLT depends on the purchase price. For a house sold for £983k, stamp duty is £39320.*
