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.

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

A.

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.

How do we avoid paying for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty amount may be due.

Q.

Of the major East Dean lenders, who have joined your panel?

A.

We work with the majority of lenders providing financing to East Dean purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in East Dean include DHH Mortgages, 120 Seaside Rd, Eastbourne, BN21 3PF, The Personal Mortgage Service, 6 Cornfield Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4PJ, and Independent Solutions, 8 South St, Eastbourne, BN21 4XF.

Q.

May the conveyancing take into account any hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any additional costs for any reason. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.

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.

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.
