Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges will be included in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

What will a Frant conveyancing lawyer recommend if the house I am buying is located in a conservation area in Wealden planning authority and turns out to have unsuitable artificial stone cladding fitted to it?

A.

Wealden planning authority enquiries carried out by your Frant conveyancing solicitor during the legal process will see the existence of suitable formal approval for any development to the property. In the absence of any consents the solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include seeking from Wealden local authority or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Do your solicitors administer the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Frant?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors often do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Lawyers invariably suggest purchasers to choose the conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction to allow for a thorough review.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your appointed property conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly prepared for completing all of the legal work in the limited time frame as required .

Q.

We are on a deadline and will need to get fast conveyancing, what should we do?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive, diligent conveyancer. Beyond that, there are a number of things you, as the buyer, can also do, such as, requesting regular updates from your conveyancer and keep the pressure on, arranging your mortgage offer and quickly answering your conveyancer's questions.

Q.

Which individual searches does my Frant conveyancer apply for on a Frant building?

A.

The regular conveyancing protocol is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps specific searches e.g. a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Hurworth has referred the lawyer which they often use. Is it advisable to instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents in Hurworth have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. These referrals should be considered carefully, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Having read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) won't be exacting enough?

A.

A good property lawyer in Frant should always include property conveyancing searches if the initial conveyancing searches spots a risk.

Perhaps you could converse with a neighbour for additional extra information.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Falmer, near Frant?

A.

Regardless of the Frant parish in which you are buying, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Frant, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
