Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the small print which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. Additional charges found in terms of engagement ought to be fair and reasonable. Any disbursements should be included on your quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? We are buying close to land owned by the church in Ferring.

A.

There are over 15,000 parishes across the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'abbey' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church properties in the local area include St Andrew.

Q.

Ferring conveyancing solicitors order necessary property when instructed to act for a purchaser - what specific searches?

A.

If applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender insist that - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and perhaps unique particular for example Index Map Search.

Q.

Does the property lawyer in Ferring inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band E cottage before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your property lawyer will consult with the Arun local authority to reveal the latest council tax rates, which should then be detailed in the report on title. Up-to-date charges for residents of Ferring are published online at the Arun council website. As at, 02 October 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,015.00
  • Band B - £1,184.00
  • Band C - £1,353.00
  • Band D - £1,522.00
  • Band E - £1,860.00
  • Band F - £2,198.00
  • Band G - £2,537.00
  • Band H - £3,044.00

Q.

Would getting a house survey be advisable if we are purchasing property in Ferring?

A.

Homeward Legal recommend that you order a survey if you are planning to buy in Ferring. There are a wide range of defects which will impact a property, including roof spread.

Q.

What should I be aware of if we invest in a Ferring building in a Arun planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Arun council enquiries conducted by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should find out the existence of suitable permission for any additions to the property.

Q.

The local agent has referred a conveyancing. Do we need to use them?

A.

An agent will push a conveyancing solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We are intending to buy a property. Do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

These searches are a commonly-used set of questions carried out for the buyer, including a drainage search. Searches are not carried out by a property surveyor and are unable to address physical defects.
