How do we get a discount conveyancing quote in Ditchling?


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.

How do I get out of paying stamp duty tax?


SDLT is generally due for property over £125,000. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.


We are buying in Ditchling on a new-build brownfield land. Seemingly rubidium (Rb) topsoil contamination may be an issue.


There are legislative rules in place to restrict soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Ditchling is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as solvents and chlorine, will also be included in an environmental search.


Would ordering a house survey be necessary if we are buying property?


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.


Is contaminated land in Ditchling a concern for the majority of properties?


Land may have been contaminated by a broad range of natural and human-influenced issues. Issues like pollution incidents will be reported on in environmental search results. Beddingham, Lewes, BN8 6JX is one such potential source of local contamination.
