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.

In respect of the serious surface water flooding in Worthing and West Sussex we are anxious that environmental searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

A thorough East Preston property solicitor will recommend that you include detailed conveyancing and environmental searches if the standard search spots a any kind of East Preston area flood risk

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.

Our mortgage lender will be Halifax Loans - what will I need to check?

A.

Purchasers should consider that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of most UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Would ordering a Homebuyer Report be advisable when we are buying a property?

A.

We recommend that the majority of buyers book a property survey if you are planning to buy in East Preston. There are a wide range of concerns which have a negative impact on a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, which include cracked roof tiles.

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?

The ground-floor flat being purchased is on a brownfield site. Is the soil likely to be contaminated?

A.

There are wide-ranging regulations in place to curtail soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like oil, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Our local agent has offered a property solicitor. Do I need to use this firm?

A.

If you choose a law firm this way, you the agent can to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
