Q.

I need a discount conveyancing quote in East Preston. What do we need to consider?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Does our conveyancing solicitor in East Preston inform me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band G maisonette before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your property solicitor will write to the council to ascertain the appropriate council tax charges which will then be detailed in the title report. Correct rates for properties in East Preston are published online at the Arun local authority website. Currently, 12 June 2012, the rates are:

Q.

Are any conservation areas in East Preston likely to affect us?

A.

Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as country house estates, will be recognised as conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

We are moving in East Preston, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Our solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees.

Q.

How many weeks should I expect it to take for my designated property solicitor to conclude the conveyancing formalities on a maisonette in a property we are buying?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks, which can depend on a number of factors e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancer, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold.

Q.

We are purchasing a newly-constructed home. Is it that significant that conveyancing searches are carried out?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a set of enquiries undertaken on behalf of the party intending to buy the property. Purchasers should know that, conveyancing searches cover solely the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

We are on a deadline and will need to get fast conveyancing, what should we get to speed up the process?

A.

It is a truism that fast conveyancing is essential to instruct a proactive and experienced solicitor. When selecting a solicitor, consider these points: Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? How soon will they order searches? Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

In about five weeks we are expecting to be finally moving from our semi detached property in East Preston to our new property in Crawley Down . What is the optimum stage to choose a house removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is for home movers to wait before making arrangements with a removal company until the point where all parties have agreed your moving date that customarily takes place once exchange of contracts. Frequently house removals companies will impose a late cancellation charge .
