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.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel liability search if you are buying a residence near a 1500s church in East Dean?

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the East Dean Church council. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for East Dean properties is likely to exist. Church of England properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include All Saints, St Simon & St Jude and St Winfrith.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern in East Dean?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by environmental factors can spoil residential property in East Dean . Issues including pollution incidents will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

The owner has unfortunately installed unseemly window frames in East Dean which I think might breach conservation area guidelines

A.

Your instructed lawyer will check if the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have the necessary consent from the Wealden council.

Q.

Will the property report prepared by the East Dean lawyer investigate the amount of council tax for a Band F building before exchange of contracts?

A.

A solicitor will write to the Wealden local council to find out the correct council tax rates, which will be set out in the conveyancing report on title. The latest tax rates for properties in East Dean are listed online at the Wealden local authority website. At the time of writing, 18 November 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,088.00
  • Band B - £1,270.00
  • Band C - £1,451.00
  • Band D - £1,632.00
  • Band E - £1,995.00
  • Band F - £2,358.00
  • Band G - £2,721.00
  • Band H - £3,265.00

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.

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.

What average time should it take for the property lawyer to exchange contracts all of the legal process for a maisonette in a Thirties property?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks contingent on various factors like the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the number of people in the chain.
