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.

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.

I am planning to buy in East Dean. Are there any areas of conservation in the area?

A.

Buyers in East Dean should be aware of several local conservation areas. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
