Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in East Dean. Can you assist?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges may inflate your final invoice. Extra costs should be fair and be applicable solely where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Our estate agent has put forward the conveyancing solicitor who they generally use. Should I use this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common path for purchasers to get a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How much can our conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches for a East Dean residential property varies noticeably. They are paid out to a 3rd party.

Q.

If we plan to buy near East Dean, in the parish of Withyham, do we need a chancel search?

Whichever East Dean parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Through some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

What property should a East Dean conveyancing solicitor order on a East Dean house?

A.

The routine legal procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search as well as any specific local searches such as Utilities Search.

Q.

I have found an increasing number online handbooks giving details on doing your own legal work. Do I actually need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in East Dean ?

A.

There are no reasons why a home seller cannot look after the bulk of the conveyancing without an instructed East Dean property lawyer. However, a conveyancing solicitor in East Dean typically handles a large number of functions ranging from chasing deeds or reading the lease some of which need a qualified solicitor.

Above all DIY lawyers are not covered by appropriate indemnity insurance which practicing solicitors are obliged to carry.

Q.

At what point do you need to instruct a conveyancer to act on our sale?

A.

In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Some groups advocate holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Is preparation of statutory declarations paid to the solicitor?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be clearly stated on a quote, without any hidden charges in the 'small print'. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a quote.
